Here Comes the Sun
Steel & Hi-Solids Paint

Located on the southeast corner of Kimbrough and Walnut

I am inspired by Life - The skyward dance of a growing seedling, stretching and reaching for the sun. Seeds begin so small and innocuous but have the potential to become a beautiful flower or a mighty oak. This fascinating idea that they all start from the same humble beginning of a seed that intrigues me.  Similarly, we humans start as a tiny fertilized egg, each with our own potential to become that "flower" or "tree" (or whatever we want to be).

I have attempted to capture, in a recognizable way, this growth and movement of a young plant. This should fascinate and intrigue audience both young and young at heart. There is so much beauty and inspiration right under out feet! My hope is to call attention to this idea.
