Small twigs, about 3 inches, cut into stick figure shapes, fastened together. One seated holding the other one that is leaping with arms high in the air.

Stick (Twig) Art 011316

Found some old images of early artwork.

Flat cuts and minimal shaping are telltale  signs of the first years.

Keeping track and remembering is why this blog was begun. So here is a little (about 3 inches tall) example of a twig sculpture made years ago.

Recently some photos (yes, actual photographs) were found. May have to take digital pics of the photos to keep up to date.

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.

  1. Whittled or not, these stickies project a wonderful interaction. I’m always amazed that you can see potential in a stick lying on the ground. To me it would be just a stick on the ground, or maybe a stick in the mud.
