Visiting our friends in Baker City Oregon October 7, 2017

Our dear friend Tom is an amazing artist.
From the 2 dimensional pieces below he
has created an imaginative tower of books
mixed with characters from children's books.
His plan is to eventually have this cast in bronze.
Some lucky library will have his tower....
will it be the library in your town?  

Using sculpy Tom is making
Tom Sawyer's raft. This will be added
to one of the nooks between the books. 


  1. How clever. I like.

    Have a fabulous day, honey. Big hug to you and Russell and lots of scritches for Miss Lucy when you get home. ♥♥♥

  2. Whodathunkit? I love this artful idea. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The tower of books is really clever!

  4. Wow-what amazing work and so relevant to the intended site!

  5. That is an amazing sculpture! It looks to be leaning, yet it stays upright, any weakness only illusory. Wonderful art!

  6. Artistic people fascinate me.

  7. What a great looking sculpture.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
