AN OLD MAN’S PRAYER

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

AN OLD MAN’S PRAYER is part of a new series “Expressive Hands” which I plan to work on this Fall. In this piece the fingers are bent with time and wear. Expectations have been colored by the disappointments and trials of life but there is hope – perhaps this time. Hand built and raku fired paper clay. 5” x 5” x 3 ½”

AN AMERICAN FACE: SELF – PORTRAIT

(C) JOHN FANSMITH 2017

Our family has a saying, “You don’t grow old on this side of your eyes”. AN AMERICAN FACE:  SELF – PORTRAIT, is my way of putting that saying to the test as well as my eye sight and artistic abilities. Not really sure if any of the three passed it. AN AMERICAN FACE:  SELF – PORTRAIT is a hand inked and hand pulled collograph. Matted and framed to 18” x 14”.
