Hi Jaz and Raspero!
I know FB and drive by politics, but have made some intersting art friends including a carver from Italy. I dont have a web site but on FB P Harris Art Studio or Pat Harris I do market through facebook some and post daily. Its not the same as viewing sculptors works, trying to help or get help. Im always into materials so you will see me throw things out there. Not used to scaling down photos but i will get it eventually
I truly spent 5 years building my studio and have picked up local commissions in a desperate act: I put large sculptures in front of my house a modest neighborhood between two wealthy neighborhoods, then started peddling prints paintings and sculpture in quarterly YART sales in front of my house! Desperate to stay in materials and get known. Amazingly, not only did I peddle my work but soon had the wealthier types ringing my door bellfor commissions! Weird, huh? Anyway, I realized that purity is out the window and will take any commission if the price is right. So, there you have it! Thanks for the welcome!!
