As an artist I know I am not unique in experiencing serendipity, the silent helping hand always seems to be in evidence when I am on purpose with my art. Serendipity is the force, whether sentient or not, that aids the creative act.

The Long Moment
The personal significance of this piece came to me as a complete surprise. I was sculpting with the intent of exploring the theme of father and son. I came to realize that what I was sculpting was actually an exact moment in my past, a very vivid memory. I grew up in small town Saskatchewan, my father used to leave for longer periods to work in the north. One day, about a week before Christmas, my father was again on his way out the front door, I was sitting on the floor looking up at him when I had the strong thought: pay attention and remember your father because you may never see him again. He was dead soon after.
I also became conscious that I am now roughly the age of my father at that time. I realized that as I was sculpting my father I was to some extent doing a self-portrait. That father and child are both part of who I am now. The moment is with me, always.
Getting To Know You
(Feel free to turn the individuals in the sculpture) This is a piece designed in a light-hearted way to facilitate communication for a couple. Though I suppose it could be quite serious. The owners of the piece have the ability for it to be significant in any way they see fit, as any changes in rotation convey messages from one piece to the other in a very primal way.
It is a piece to be actively enjoyed and given meaning by the owners.
