That time right before I wake up is a sensitive time; it’s when things come to me, ideas, concepts, meaningful dreams, etc. That’s how this idea came to me; this idea of a kind of “totem pole…” That was a little over 10 years ago…still making them…!
No nails are used; all pieces are held together with screws. The canvas is stapled to the back center bar. Below are two versions of the totems. One is acrylic on canvas; the other is charcoal on canvas. I have proposed to create a version of these for the Mendenhall Valley Library in Juneau, Alaska. We’ll see if my proposal is accepted.
