Early on he was noticed…
An up and coming artist, they said
What happened wasn’t unusual…
Life just took its toll…
It’s happened far too many times
Patronage in previous centuries
Allowed the creation of
Countless paintings and sculptures
But looking at our priorities now
You see buildings devoid of ornament…
If anyone is waiting, wants the work
Of a creative soul…he asks…
What are you waiting for
As his time grows shorter?
He’d like to meet those
Who admire his work

    I’ve never seen your sculptures but I love your words!

      Thank you, Suzanne. Unfortunately, most of my work was made before digital images became the standard, and converting slides, though I must do it, is extremely time consuming, and time is a premium for me. So little time…so much to do. 😛

        Understood… I think. I don’t know why you have so little time but I understand the concept. Hugs my friend💗

        I’ve been juggling too many things for a long time. Trying to simplify, but even that takes a lot of time. I won’t share the list here, but it’s extensive.
