“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” ~ John Milton
I love this piece. It’s an original Robert Shinn assemblage. Robert makes some of the most creative works I’ve ever seen. He’s lived all over the country, but he currently lives in Moodys, Oklahoma. He posted a picture of this piece on facebook. It was love at first sight. I bought it, and straight up on the wall it went as soon as it got here. The piece probably has a title (naturally, I don’t remember it), but it reminds me so much of Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High that I look at it, giggle, and call it Spicoli. You can see more of Robert’s work here and here. He’s also gracing the cover of Solidago’s Spring edition with a beautiful piece called Fractured Frida. Have I mentioned that Robert is über awesome? He’s awesome to say the least. Baby doll hands, a guitar neck, and a paintbrush on an old skateboard. I’m in love, and it feels good.
