Looks Clean and Orderly to Me

May not look tidy to you but looks like Mr. Clean was here to me! Take a good look before I mess it all up again!

You can see some of the process of stick work here. When a stick with acceptable shape is found it goes into the collection. Then sticks of similar sizes go together in a box or pile. Then they are matched and paired into a dancing couple or ring of stick people or whatever their shapes seem to be wanting to do. When a good fit is found they are marked and temporarily secured (as many on the table are). Then final shaping, sanding, and then the tricky part, trying to pin them together so the pinning can’t be seen.

Haven’t been able to drive a car into my garage since I got into artwork. There are plans to expand into a larger garage/studio so I can work on bigger pieces and vehicles.

Past: Tolerated the U.S. educational system as far as a Bachelors degree. Favorite sports were skateboarding, windsurfing and pole vaulting. Worked on many jobs and projects, giving me a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Present: People call me a renaissance man. I still enjoy variety and being productive. Probably why artwork is one of my lasting activities. Snowboarding and hiking are my favorite ways to recreate with my amazing wife and sons.
