Sorry for the silence...remiss of me.
My friend Ben is reaching an age milestone and I am making him something. He has always been very complimentary about my work and I wanted to give him something that would be only for him.
This is a piece about 14 inches square, it has two doors that open to reveal drawings of his wife and children. Its all made of wood and painted to look like rusty metal.
Meanwhile work on other pieces continues and the local museum and art gallery is interested in doing an exhibition of my serious box works...I only have to make 17 more of them. The curator wants to work with me to develop the theme and ensure it is a coherent concept. Something to work towards!
