Someone called with interest in this piece...just after I'd taken it out of Uptown Gallery in Grand Haven! If you're checking this site to see this piece again (you know who you are) it is still available. You may want to search the blog to see earlier postings about it. There's a great quote that goes with it.
We could negotiate a price without frame and glass and I could ship it to you carefully wrapped with the acid free mat and foamcore. Thanks for your interest. Call me or email me through my website listed under links.

This piece, though not accepted into the Muskegon Regional at the Muskegon Museum of Art, made it through 'soft jurying' by MMA curators after the show was selected and this was among 40 pieces chosen to be part of the Art in the Park over the Fourth of July weekend.

This is an image from another year, but the same cast of characters were in the water yesterday putting in the Tosebo docks for summer! What a ritual! We were thankful for moderate temperatures. What you don't see are the two lovely assistants, wet and dirty from doing the onshore and on the water's edge component of the work. We accomplished a lot of tasks this weekend that will make the summer pleasant.

"Being thankful is not telling God you appreciate the fact that your life is not in a shambles. If that is the basis of your gratitude, you are on slippery ground. Every day of your life you face the possibility that a blessing in your life can be taken away. But blessings are only signs of God's love. The real blessing, of course, is the love itself. Whenever we get too attached to the sign, we lose our grasp on the God who gave it to us. Churches are filled with widows who can explain this to you. We are not ultimately grateful that we are still holding our blessings. We are grateful that we are held by God even when the blessings are slipping through our fingers.
Gratitude is our ability to see the grace of God, morning by morning, no matter what else greets us in the course of the day."
HUSTLING GOD: WHY WE WORK SO HARD FOR WHAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE.
“Great is Jehovah! Greatly praise Him! His greatness is beyond discovery! Let each generation tell its children what glorious things He does.”
Psalm 145: 3&4
“… let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans- and all that lives and moves upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit- and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused- and to save us from our own foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.”
