2020 I started the year with a month of art making on the theme of including a sculpture, or what I think is sculpture in each artwork. Perhaps because my father was a sculptor and metals artist I have quite a lot of sculpture and I have an appreciation for sculpture. Here is the group of what I completed on this theme in January 2020.
