They Say It's Art

As I've said before, I don't consider myself an artist, but my friends Jerry and Judy Francil are slowly convincing me that I may be wrong.

I recently stopped by the art center to show Jerry my latest creation, 'Curley'.  After he explored every surface and declared it was 'beautiful', he suggested I enter it in the soon-to-be-held Fall Members Show, which is a juried exhibition with art hanging from September 30 until October 28. Each artist is allowed to enter three pieces for consideration.  Two of my three were selected by the judge for exhibition. How's that for being lucky?

My son Joe coined the phrase 'art with strings' to distinguish my creations, but until now, I wasn't quite sure he had it right.  Us old timers really can learn from our kids and friends.

'Bigfoot' and 'Curley' were the selections, and it will remain to be seen how they are received by attendees to the month-long event.
