I sometimes hear from my artist friends that there is no official patronage in the U.S.
I counter this with my own experiences of wealthy clients supporting the arts,though I will certainly admit it does not take the usual form of that in Europe and other long established cultural art programs.
To whit;I received a call a couple of weeks ago from the vice president of Miller Electric Mfg.Co. with a strange offer.He had seen my website and was aware that i make my metal sculpture using Miller Welders.He told me they have a conference coming up and wanted to do a fund raiser and sell some metal sculptures made with their machines.He offered to trade me a new MIG,TIG,Stick combination welder for two of my small works...Today the Northern California Division Manager delivered and set up my new machine.Thank you MILLER !

Brings Nor Cal to mind alright. The first impression I had with one of your shells was -- wow that really feels like what Fort Bragg feels like. Wonderful!

Thank you for your comments Paula,I grew up on the coast in Maine,where i still try to visit once a year,but moved out here to Northern Cali in 1975.I live 25 minutes from Bodega Bay.So I'm still in love with all things marine of either coast.Recently the shells of both the Atlantic and Pacific have become of great interest to me...I think when you love the form of a thing it is the most natural urge in the world to want to emulate,or reproduce it in some way,especially if you're an artist...
