The figurative art included here are my first 2D shapes I started with (vs. the 3D flowers).  It provided me with a canvas of sorts to learn how to use paints and patinas.

All are 16 or 14 gauge sheet steel, wall hangings and sealed for outdoor display.  And yes, some of these are derived from Matisse’s “cutouts.” I wanted to start with something that worked (it was a learning period!).
