'Pueblo Life'

Limestone from Missouri Ozarks is carved in abstraction and mounted on a walnut base. This is my first stone carving attempt done in 1982. I was motivated after being inspired by seeing some of the works of the late Allan Houser, Chiricahua Apache artist and teacher in Taos, NM. The carving was made using steel dental tools and sandpaper as well as chisel and hammer. The work is 7 inches in height 5" diameter and is resting on a hand cut walnut base.

Vincent, I have seen a few of your pieces while rating. I never came to your "page" and made the connection. You are so right about the "art world" It is often, not always, who you know that gets you "in". If some "great critique" says your great, then the rest assume the same. Not only is your work great, but so is your additude toward living things! Bravo to you!

This is very nice. I had a gallery owner tell me my paintings were better then some of the artist in his Gallery. But I was a nobody------

Artist Reply: Thanks Cathy! That's the thing-we're all sort of nobodies unless some day we get hyped up by a big magazine. I don't think there is anyone out there in painting that is trying to dodge the paparatsi anyway. The publicity does get work sold in the wildlife and western art mags.
