Portfolio of older work

I have spent the last few days in Vermont attending a conference then checking out the countryside.  Can you believe that view?

While wandering we ran across this metal sculpture in a cow pasture.  And then there was another small one by the farm house. 

While I was photographing it from the car (the BIG dog that lived there was barking and loose), the lady of the house came out and told me the artist is Johnny Swing!  How cool!  Johnny is most famous for his chairs and couches welded from coins.

But talk about inspiration everywhere!  Can't you see this picture with hand dyed fabric in the back and then black trees silkscreened and some green leaves silkscreened plus thread play over that?  I can't wait to get back to my studio!
