Knife/Crow piece finished – thanks to Paul Holsby

The other day as I was cleaning up in a remote corner of the property I found a couple of pieces discarded by the previous owner/artist Paul Holsby. The had cut tin plates in abstract (?) shapes and colored them. He had used them for a sculpture in the yard, probably quite a few years ago, see photo below. I cleaned off most of the moss and dirt and glued them onto my painting, as colored clouds, birds or whatever your imagination wants. A great contribution by Paul Holsby, who passed away in December 2007. He was a fine artist who was able to keep a childlike curiosity and imagination all his active life!knifcro9
