Here is another of my abstract wall pieces. They are just like sketches, but with steel. They give me good practice with composition. I think they turn out pretty good. I have several more that are in progress right now and others that I am currently painting. I have been sticking mostly with monotone type themes. I would love to get a commission for a large one of these and be given a direction for color and even shape. I have been thinking of doing some that are somewhat more figurative or roughly imply an image. This one is mostly green in color so I am calling it O-O-O-Organic.

This sculpture is of a water lily floating at the waters surface. I made it look like the leaf and flower are floating on invisible water. I did this one a long time ago as a gift for my mom. If I were to do this one again I would make the underwater part of the plant more detailed, maybe adding a few more leaves that are growing up to the surface.
I hope everyone is having a good summer. You can come and visit me and see my artwork in person every saturday at the East Dundee farmers market. I am available for custom work as well as any handyman/repair jobs. Send me an email : Kellensmetalart@comcast.net.
