This piece is one i did for the Attleboro Arts Museum, Celebration of the Seasons. I donate a few pieces every year, and i always do something that is not typical of my usual work. This work was done with silver paint by Gamblin. They have a number of great colors that have a metallic look to them. Not sure if i i ever would use this in my usual work, but it fun to experiment.
I am heavily involved at the Attleboro Arts Museum, which has led to some interesting projects and "out of my comfort zone' works. I am sure the delight i have in this comes from multitasking from my toy designer days at Hasbro. I love when i have much going on, and i switch from one gear to another. I know that all this gear shifting leads to greater things, and more diversity in my work. As a volunteer and a trustee at the museum, i am heavily influenced by what i see in the many exhibitions they have there. Again, i know this enriches my and helps me grow.
