Matador Awaiting Bull

Wood sculpture with fabric connected by knots.  Fir carving is about bout 20″ tall, fabric trails about 4′.

Sometimes the three matadors stand together as they await the first bull of the afternoon.  Sometimes the first matador stands alone.

I carve stone & wood sculpture, and photograph ikebana, pictographs, landscapes and my own sculptures. I browse my images on screen until one of them speaks to me. Then I work-up something in Photoshop. Often, I do nothing with it for a long time -- perhaps until another browsing trail leads me back to it. So, it might become a simple inkjet print, or a Photoshop project, or a carving -- often I take pictures of the work-in-progress, and work them into the progress of the work. My studio is in Kentfield, California.
