A final artwork
On Thursday I completed a new piece outdoors on the property.
In the Shadow of the Palm is an abstraction of the tree shadow made from sea shells. These shells are used here for pathway paving the way we use gravel back home. I must thank Matt Hall for the suggestion that I do a piece like this. He saw the work I made in the South Park Blocks Portland in 1984, In the Shadow of the Elm.
Matt said something like, “We could do something like that here. I’ve got tons of pit shell.” So on Wednesday and Thursday we went out and did it.
Saturday at noontime we leave the property, heading to the Ft. Myers airport. This blog will continue, but without the colorful birds, flowers and people I’ll miss from here.
