Carved Stone in Dripping Springs Texas



Dear Art Lover,
     Phil and Michelle Hoggatt have been friends of mine for many years.  They live and work in Dripping Springs, Texas, with their home-based business called Carved Stone, Inc.  They are such good people and I am thrilled and honored to call them friends.  They create many products for the home (lamps, benches, etc.) from Texas limestone and sometimes other materials. 
     Many years ago they added a sculpture garden, creating a path through the shady parts of their property.  They have hosted many sculpture events and fundraisers for charities and visitors are welcome to stroll the grounds.  I hope that you will go visit some time and even take some of their stone creations into your home.  John and I arrived there late in the evening after we got delayed accidentally in Boerne for several hours, so I do not have any images of the Hoggatt’s lovely gift shop.  

Visit them online at: https://carved-stone.com/

     The bonus for my visit was that they still had a lot of blooming Texas bluebonnets!  I hope you enjoy their nightlights in the garden, as well as my snapshot of the full moon overhead us during our visit.

Four New Pastel Paintings For You



Dear Art Lover,
     These four pastel paintings came with me to Texas.  They are each created on UArt Sanded paper designed for pastels.  And they are mounted on acid-free foam core.  Each is the 12 x 18 inch size with the foam core slightly larger for handling.  However, the board may be cut to suit whatever frame you choose.  Each artwork shown here is priced to sell at only $600.  Please contact me if you would like to add any of these or others to your art collection.  http://www.borsheimarts.com/contact.htm

     I will be leaving Texas in about a week and traveling to Florida to help my baby sister celebrate her marriage.  After that, I will be traveling to see more family in North Carolina and Virginia before arriving at Don Elliott’s Franklin Barry Gallery on Monday, May 15.  I hope to see you there, or later in Austin, Texas, for a visit.

Gemini in Boerne Texas


Dear Art Lover,
     I have been working in Texas for several days now, back in my former studio/home.  Saturday, John and I drove to the re-opening of the new Sculptor’s Dominion large garden sculpture exhibition in the new location in Boerne, Texas. 
     We brought my bronze figure sculpture “Gemini” with us and put her up on a pedestal.  The site is the home of Gilbert E. Barrera, a friend of mine for many years after he traveled from his former home in San Antonio to Austin in order to connect with other sculptors.  He came to the Elisabet Ney Sculpture Conservatory, where I was teaching at the time and where the home of the Texas Society of Sculptors was back in the mid-1990s and early 2000.  And a bunch of us helped him start his dream show.

     His new location is his family ranch of about 300 acres.  I understand from some of the guests this past weekend that the Barrera family is well-known and respected in San Antonio.  Gilbert’s father is famous and recently turned 90 years old.  He still practices law.  Gilbert has done a lot of work on this property, including restoring an old log cabin from the time of the famous battle at The Alamo.  It is a beautiful location.  The old oak trees are amazing, a personal love of mine. 
      Gilbert exhibits all styles of sculpture and materials that are strong for outdoor display.  You are sure to find something that you enjoy there and hopefully want to add to YOUR garden!  If you find yourself in central Texas, please contact Gilbert for a visit to the Sculptor’s Dominion.  You may reach him on Facebook or by e-mail at gilbertebarrera@gmail.com
     I hope you enjoy the images here, which also show just a few of the many large or really large outdoor sculptures!
