Going out with students to enjoy the sunny atmosphere led me to the small courtyard off the Maine Office here at school today, and after a quick "double exposure" (bench texture)with my "Hipstamatic" app on my phone I became interested in the steel figure sculpture by Clark Fitzgerald in that area. I was almost immediately drawn into the various textures on the aging steel surfaces. While some of these textures are simply natural occurrence from the welding process, many are the result of weathering of the paint on the piece and have no context other than visual interest when viewed closely. I will post three that I enjoy.
I was born in Ellsworth and grew up in Winter Harbor, Maine and have lived here most of my life. I received my Bachelor's (1973) and Master's (2005) degrees from the University of Maine. I am a Maine boy through and through.
