Two-Headed Boy Whirligig Version 3

This third version of the Two-Headed Boy whirligig was made for a good friend's 40th birthday.  It now bookends along with a Howard Finster piece, an original Picasso.  I forgot to photograph the piece, so I asked the recipient of the work to snap a picture so I could display it here.  He holds a jug of moonshine and a flattened possum with tire tracks.  Click on the piece for a larger view.

Man with Heart

 This is a piece I made for my girlfriend Karen for Christmas.  It's about 7" including the base.

New Horse in Hoop

I finished this one last night.  It's a wedding present for a fellow bartender who was married last month.  It's the same size as the last one except this horse is not flat and is balanced without any added weights.  It's based on a turn-of-the-century tin toy that sold for around $2500 in 2006.

My first showing

Here's my set-up for my first ever showing of my work at the 10th Anniversary Blue Genie Art Bazaar.  Hopefully a few of the pieces will sell... if not I'll have plenty of birthday presents for friends for the next year or two.
