I've always enjoyed working with color, but in recent years have really developed a technique. I've learned a lot more about how the steel behaves. I'm coming to grips with the fact that this is another type of art I'm developing that is less sculptural, more like painting. I have a tendency to want to do something with these, some kind of welding because that's typically what I do, but some are so beautiful they should simply be hung. It's an off shoot I guess.
I got a lot of comments at this show saying my work has changed, seeming to have gone to a next level in terms of design and execution. This surprised me as much as it made me feel good. I suppose I'm always working on it, trying to improve, so I don't see the progression as easily.
In any case people seemed to enjoy seeing the work and that was very gratifying.
