Seeking and Finding.

It’s been a long time, my friends. I have received questions and comments from people – saying WHERE ARE YOU, WHERE IS THE ART? I’ll be honest, things were slow for the past six months. I was doing lots of art, but wasn’t sending pieces around the world. But then the other day I got a message over Twitter:

In May 2021, Cheryl found a piece of Art in library book in a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada. This piece was made about a month before the pandemic hit, and somehow found its way to a library book, and was found over a year later. I do not know exactly how this piece of Art made its way to New Glasgow (which is far away from where I live), but it do. I do not know how it made its way into a library book, but it did. I don’t know what the chances are that Cheryl picked up a book, and found this art.

Let me say that again, because it is incredible to think: A global pandemic was about to hit. Someone hid a piece of my art in a library book and it was found over a year later. That is inspiring, lovely, and speaks to the essence of Found This Art.

More to come, my friends. The energy is returning. More art shall be made, shared, and found.

From the studio

It has been a while since I’ve posted, but rest assured, Found This Art is still going strong. Rumour has it that some pieces have been deposited alongside ‘in flight’ menus in the seat pockets of airplanes. A secret agent also took some pieces to coast of north-east England.

Today, I wanted to share what I’ve been working on in the studio. In my part of the world, spring is in full swing, so tulips are on order. I also noticed a good old-fashioned tire swing on my walk this morning. There is also a ‘water theme’ going on, with fun fish, and a view across a quiet lake. These four pieces are numbers 21 through 24 – so I’m staying on track for about one piece per week.

These pieces, and many others, will soon make their way around the world. Stay tuned!
