Breaux Bridge (pg.5 of 5): Chênes Brûlée, a found-art piece

.

(cont’d from pg.4 of 5).

November 15, 2014 – First 2 testers, still on floor, nothing hung yet.  Can’t decide whether to include little items and the land plat, maybe some photos, as in the 1st photo below, or keep it simple, like in the 2nd.  What do you think?

———————————————– And here are the pieces that lend themselves to study for what I have in mind.

Danny Saathoff, assemblage art

Danny Saathoff, one of my favorite assemblage artists. All his pieces are complex, kinetic, and interesting.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the Breaux Bridge chapter of my grandmother’s biography.  I certainly enjoyed bringing it to you.  Take care.   Laura
