This is Leaves of a Feather, my latest mobile sculpture. It was tricky to make because the client liked a previous mobile I had made but wanted the sizes altered. This adds a lot of extra work and calculating, but I am pleased with it. Powder coating makes it all glossy and perfect. This sculpture is in a private collection.

Tah Dah! Here is my finished wall sculpture "Red Dot #3." It is 44x44x4, and made from steel, disk brushed stainless steel, and hot roll steel plate. I used copper and various combinations of patinas, as well as red, black, gray, and holographic paints. The fun part of this type of sculpture is that it is meant to evolve and change as the rust spreads and deepen in tone, and the patinas continue to develop. There are three hidden mounting holes covered by parts held on by super strong neodymium magnets.

Finally, I just heard that the new spinoff of Sons of Anarchy, titled Mayans MC will be premiering this June on the FX Channel! They rented a substantial amount of Bruce Gray sculptures for the set of show, but they ended doing a lot of reshooting, so I don't know if my stuff made the cut. I was on set for a day of filming and took some great photos which I will share after the show airs. They even interviewed me about my contribution which may be featured on the show or who knows where.

Throwback Thursday presents: One of my favorite on screen appearances of my sculptures was my Big Cheese sculpture on Six Feet Under. They used several of my sculptures in multiple episodes, and even had my name on the wall as a participating artist in the gallery scenes. I also got to meet Lauren Ambrose at a party who was super nice and very complimentary about my sculptures.

OK, so I wasn't going to post about this, but I can't get it out of my mind. Last weekend my brother came by and we were outside grilling up some burgers for lunch. I am on dozens of meds for chemo etc, so I don't know what caused this, but I had a spontaneous hallucination. At first there were glowing purple batches of orbs floating around, but then everything turned bright white. Not just sort of white, but powerful gleaming INTENSE white that glowed on the trees, chairs, plants and everything else in my yard. It was so bright, it was almost hard not to squint my eyes. My brothers body was about 80% glowing white, and I was thinking that this was possibly the last few seconds of my life, and that this was the bright light people who come close to dying see. The experience was nearly half an hour total, and was not brought on by any hallucination causing drugs. Nothing like this has ever happened before. I sort of feel compelled to try to paint what I saw so I can share the experience, but I doubt I could even slightly do it justice. One of the most bizarre, confusing, and yet beautiful experiences in my entire life.

I just said goodbye to three of my sculptures headed to Dallas. These happen to be some of the best works of my career, and it's a bit like sending off a kid of to college, I would imagine. For my Texan friends, watch for my motorcycle sculpture to be featured at The Haas Moto Museum in Dallas as part of their permanent collection. Grand opening this May. End of crate photos, I promise.
