  • I think Jim and Susie are on to something. The "tapestry" to the right looks like Adele Bauer-Bloch!

  • It's a fantasy land for someone who really likes the impressions one tries to make of limited material. This artist has used recyclable things and made them into impressive tapestry. He has made an effort to try and make all the colors blend together. In some pieces I see almost a face, but in others I feel it was effortlessly sewn together with metal and copper wire. While some pieces are standing up I feel that they are almost the same as ones hanging from the ceiling they have no thing they need to be more what others see. It will never be the same as what another one sees.

  • The Peak looks like a mountain. Also Earths Skin
    looks like Earth in Autimn.
