This started out as a welded steel skeleton for a clay model to cast in bronze. But once Jesse had welded the skeleton, I noticed that some of the old pitchforks in the dandyland ogun piles had the right lines for the ears, and then it became a scavenger hunt for the rest of the parts. Most of the pieces are from old farm tools and machinery.

Shane & I, with help from Jake & Richard, installed the Cedar Horse. I was very happy that the horse proved strong enough to be transported laying on its side. This is an image contemplated for many years, so I'm especially grateful to see it realized in a 3 dimensional form. The mane and tail were the last pieces to be added - we went on a hunt for them in the cedar grove.

These are terrible photos of the collage Triptych for Love & Time - today is overcast and the glossy paper glares with added light. It's a riff on Bosch's triptych. The little people are the dancers, photographed by William Cox, performing Love & Time, printed in various color combinations to fit the three panels. The rest of the images were cut from a large stack of magazines.
