Saying Goodbye

After living with "The Steward" for a little over two months, I said goodbye to "him" yesterday. Our short-lived relationship was just what every positive relationship should be. "He" pushed me to do things artistically that made me think and grow, made me happy, worried me, and challenged me. I am grateful for every moment, even the sleepless nights. I thank Paul-Gordon Chandler for selecting me to participate in this wonderful exhibition.

Speaking of gratitude, I want to thank the employees of Farrish Fairfax Auto Body. Upon completion, I realized that I wanted to protect the end result. Unfortunately, I had a bear of a time finding an auto body shop that was willing to take on the task of clear-coating the finished product. Fortunately, I contacted Kevin Wynn at Farrish Fairfax Auto Body. Kevin, the manager of the body shop, and George Gallahan, the assistant manager, couldn't have been more helpful. They insured that the sculpture was treated with care, and put a protective coating on the surface that is undetectable. I send them a hearty thank you. Now, "The Steward" will be able to travel to New York City in October without damage, and whoever purchases the sculpture will have a well-protected piece of art.
