 CIRCLES

 

Most of my art reflects, and tries to capture, the human condition.

The silly looking creature walking around in circles in the piece above is how I see you and me often going through life observing the stuff of our reality and not always knowing what to make of it in the pursuit of our happiness.

This sculpture entitled CIRCLES is currently on display at 1550 Main Street.

 

Price 1,800.00.
