Up Coming Meetings
September 4, 2014 Rocky Mountain Woodturners meeting
It is my belief that artists of all kinds express what is meaningful in their lives, and in the world that they live in, through their artwork. Our values, emotions, fears, and delights emerge through the work of our hands. Art is, and historically has always been, a vitally important element of every civilized human society.
Beauty is important to me. I surround myself with the beauty of Nature. I love to work with the most beautiful and precious materials. In my artwork, I express my love of the beauty in our world.
The finely finished interior spaces, and the jewels that I hide inside my pieces, express my feeling that the most precious treasures in life are those that are hidden from view. I like to look on the bright side, seeking out the hidden opportunities that are there for those who make the extra effort to look. Treasures are found in the love of a life-long friend, in "taming" a feral cat, and in the view from the top of a steep mountain climb.
