FDR 

Sept. 23, 2020 – 30x38" – One reason why I keep creating scrap art is that it still surprises me – I didn't see FDR until I began moving this metal piece around inside a frame. As soon as I saw that iconic 1939 photo of Roosevelt smiling with his long cigarette holder, it kinda completed itself. Wired, ready to hang. $400.

My Father David

July 13, 2020 – 12.5x19x2.25" – The smashed drawer looked like Dad, so I finished him off with the brayer and white feathers. The meaning of all these things hit me like a 2x4 when I looked at the finished portrait. NFS.

My Brother Mark 

July 13, 2020 – 13.25x25.5x5" – My brother thought the piece of wood he found (with the porcelain conductor thingy) looked like him and he let me take it home and complete it. He's an avid photographer, animal/nature lover. NFS.

TV Indian

Dec. 9, 2019 – 3'x5'9" – I found the vintage portable television frame in a creepy thicket south of Laurel, MD and flattened it out. That's when I saw the fringe on the legs. I picked up the sign fragment in Jacksonville, FL and the busted roof fan immediately reminded me of a chief's headdress. $600.

Rube Foster

Aug. 14, 2019 – 34x34" – Assemblage made of ceiling tin, wheel barrow handle, rubber ball, weathered plywood, license plate letters and a 1950s leather baseball glove. This started out as a generic old timer, but he looked like somebody. Sure enough, Rube Foster, who was a great pitcher, manager and entrepreneur of the Negro Leagues, presented himself as a dead ringer. I never know ahead of time how these things work out. Sold.

Made of piano fragment, hand forged barn door hinges, chain relic and other found objects. $400.

Owlet

March, 2019 – A very nice lady commissioned me to create something of a good-luck talisman for her. After a long time considering what to do, I sort of fell in love with this little fellow, suggested by a driftwood section of a log and a mason's hoe. When I asked her if an owlet would be ok, she answered that where she lives, she can hear owls at night outside her window . . . so it was meant to be. Sold.
