From an Empty Bath Tub To a Full Victorii

July 11, 2017

Work started on the first sculpture, outdoors, surrounded by palms.  My studio was on the grounds of my Daughter, Mindy and Son in Law, Eric's business. I couldn't think of a better place to create than surrounded by my families business and their devoted employees.  I felt very secure there, knowing they were close by and in times of need, they helped with moving sculpting equipment from my indoor studio to the concrete blocks  

and offered moral support all during the process.

 

I suppose I could of contacted the media when the piece arrived but I didn't.  It was more important to concentrate on the task at hand and just invite a few friends and  acquaintances by from time to time.  That all changed when Bin Laden was no longer alive.  I had been searching for a name for this sculpture and now I had it.  VICTORII REBUILD.  I invited the local television station, WINK, to come out and see what was being done.  I explained the meaning behind the name to be the victory of Bin Laden now being gone and associated it with a rebuilding of our Nation.  The 'V' had already been cut and now it had a meaning.  

 

The process all in all, took eight months to completed.  From the first phone calls to Rich and to the final phase of the cutting and polishing of the sculpture, it was an amazing experience.  Every time I needed something done with large equipment, I hired local, family owned businesses. My local networking business group that I belonged to, Quality Service Pros, had a fund raiser and golf outing to raise funds to help support this project for I had to take off most of my other fine art painting work to be able to accomplish this.  

 

Now I just needed to find a home.  That was found in the city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  It is permanently set there, in their Payrow Plaza, at 10 E. Church Street, in between City Hall and the Public Library, overlooking the Lehigh Valley.
