Akins' Bird House
Steve pushed me in a new direction in my work.
When Steve picked up the piece, he loved it.
After thatI started to make wall sculptures and used the left over paint. In January Steve stopped in to share how the birdhouse was received. The recipients loved it.
I showed Steve my wall sculptures, he was enthralled by them. At this time he suggested I make vases. I started on the vases and created some rustic pieces from pallet wood. I painted the vases a multitude of colors with different textures. At this point I started to use paint more often to add color and dimension to my work. I am not a painter by any means and have great respect for those who can paint.
