Love Grows

  • 2017

Artist Statement

Love, nature, progress, music... these things sprout up wherever they can. Through the smallest cracks between the weathered planks of this "barnwood" piano springs the new growth of spring folliage. Charming yellow accents make the piece lively and eyecatching, but it is when the piano is played that it, literally and figuratively, springs to life!
