Folk Art Monster “Mushroom”

This next piece i will post is what I call true folk art. I started with an idea of sea shells and coral, plus a little bit of driftwood,—And the monster took off. First the driftwood , then across from it, a large sea shell–throw in a little coral—ad more sea shells, and more coral–Don’t forget the Suzan B Anthony dollar—a Holey stone–Oh no, it is falling off the other side! Add more Apoxie Sculpt, OMG, it is starting to harden a little, straighten out—-can’t, it has it’s own mind.–Give up and let it be! And here you have ir—You don’t like it or you love it. Actually, I love the monster—Arleney doesn’t. Two folks thought it was “cool”.. Anyway it has someone it is going to. so I guess it is up to what she thinks! One thing for sure, there will never be another one like it!—Thanks to

Barbara Kaiser

in Florida and to Anthony Bozzuto in Florida for the beautiful sea shells and coral.

Omar Palencia

Omar Palencia is a very special young man in Mexico. His goal is rescuing dogs—taking them off the streets, caring for them, and finding a home for them. I think he is very deserving! Become his friend on Facebook—Help him if you can!

Arleney Loves Pink

One of my favorite things in life is flowers. Arleney loves pink so what fun I have! It is difficult for her to walk on an uneven surface so I arranged these in our patio and around the patio where she can see them while standing on a firm surface—Here is a sampling.

“Mushroom” for Sammy

I have two teen-age granddaughters close in age. They are Patricia and Sammy. I promised them a “Mushroom’ each. I tried to make the “Mushroom” individually as I think they would enjoy. Today I will post Sammy’s. Tomorrow I will post Patricia’s—Please note—Color is a little off—should be showing deep purple.

For Lorraine in Australia

I was asked to send a “Mushroom” to a very worthy lady in Australia. A check was mailed to me covering the “Mushroom” and expenses. This was made for Lorraine in Australia as requested. I very much appreciated this being done! It helps a bunch! Here is the “Mushroom”.


“Life” I almost hate to post this one as I will never do any better. It is “Life”. —An old battered bucket, obviously ran over-smashed, and shot hundreds of times—it is “Life”. My God can take an old battered life and change it just as I took this old battered bucket and made it into a piece of art I love—This was contributed to by Barbara Kaiser of Florida and Anthony Bozzuto of Florida–both provided sea shells and coral after the hurricanes. Peter in RhodeIsland keeps me in a study supply of crystals that I can somewhat afford. The Hag Stone–(Holey Stone) came from Israel where Jesus could have walked.—It is 14″ up and down,19″ across. The bucket sticks out about 4″.
