Dominique's Garden 2023

I began this commission in 2006 and have continued to sculpt it till the spring of 2023. In the 17 years of its evolving life, I've changed too, of course. I've learned about saving trees and shrubs, even when they have grown together and show the scars from that. Give them time to heal, with space. Re-orient them in a garden, appreciating them anew. The practical aspect, the metaphor and meaning. All very corny stuff, but, it's true. I learned about it in this garden, with clarity and from Dominique's commitment.
