Being an Artist?


For me, "being an artist" is the desire to create something that has never been done before. I could take my skills and work in a factory repetatively making the same things and make more money but I wouldn't be happy doing it. These copper panels are five feet tall and two feet wide and became the main features in an Entry Gate for a local winery. I dreamed about this first and then found the job to apply it to. My next ambition is to make a working water fall within an Entry Gate! Wouldn't that be fun!

Jerry, at the risk of sounding repetitive, your work is outstanding. At the moment I'm sitting in a University classroom (my closest friend is a Professor) and I have access to this computer.. catching up on my blogs while waiting for her to finish. Your panels are five ft. just my height... except they're beautiful.!!! lol!
