Please always go to your public library . It is how I got my inspiration & started this gallery that has been on going for 30 years.Photos maybe used with attribution.steve. "If you can't fix it, you've gotta stand it."- Ennis Del Mar. Outdoor Land Sculpture by Steve From the mountains of Lovingston, Virginia, he combines his years of experience with welding, stone fabrication and logging to create sculptures from natural materials and found iron objects that are beautiful and classical in their presentation and intelligently humorous in their content and titles. They all seem to have a story to tell, just like Steve himself.Above written by ardenbarry collection. The line between Creative Genius and Insanity is a very fine one. The closer you can get to the latter, the more "wow" the piece becomes! Dear "modernmaster", Congratulations. Darned if the turtle shell you made out of copper doesn't look more like a turtle shell than a real turtle shell! Before I looked at your description, I assumed that this was a real turtle shell. You certainly are a "Master" at making anything out of anything. I always love to see what creative work you will put up next! Thanks so much for sharing your creations on ArtsWe.com. Sincerely, Ken Boyer. I am glad to see that you have found a way to turn the "windmills of your mind" into a profitable and genuine artistic contribution. In looking over your inventory every piece you produce has integrity, is unique and interesting...much like the artist himself . gallery guest. I look forward to my next visit. God has a great sense of humor and wants us to laugh as much as possible. He created a few characters like you to confirm how much he wants us to be happy and to have a good laugh once in a while. I enjoyed all you had to say. Be well, Rob V. An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one. ~Charles Horton Cooley. Dear steve, thank you for your time & tour. You have the biggest& best body of work in the south east.No body can say you are not diversified. Your studio may be the most fabulous I have ever seen & your raw materials are second to none. Steve you have a god given gift , make it work for you. Thanks again. David Breeden, [Biscuit run, charlottesville, va.] Also see https://www.facebook.com/steves.sculptures
