I have been neglecting the blog. The defender of the arts, My biggest work to date, is growing into a fabulous piece.
Donny, as i call him for short, is an idea i have had for many years. The arts are being taken from us, removed from schools because of funding. Pushed to the side in order that children learn the three Rs. We need the basic schooling to get through life, but what kind of life do we live with out the beauty of a sculpture or the joy of a symphony. Art is a basic human need, the need to create and the need to have or lives enriched by beauty. Donny is in motion, an active defender a champion seeking to achieve victory, not to stoically watch over the old but bring all art to a renewed victory in the hearts of people.

Donny is a collection of parts from a elevator i removed from a job, Iron i collected from the dumpsters around my office, and a ton of wire salvaged from commercial job-site dumpsters thanks to Jimmy Hanes (super-duper door guy) I will continue to photo Donny and post updates. I’m also trying to find him a home in public place if anyone can help with that idea.
