Hey ya'll I'm still around, just really been idle for most of the summer, hiding from the sun. It was hot enough in Florida without welding...then add all the extra clothing/protection and it's unbearable...the weather is begining to change for the better, hopefully I will get myself in gear. The heat didn't used to matter so much, I miss youth really bad..

Well, let me see what else I might find to post on this rainy night in Florida.

Bob Dylan the Metal man.

Bob Dylan the Metal man.

Who knew Dylan was into heavy metal? 72-year-old Bob Dylan has quietly been working as a metal sculptor at his home in Malibu. Using a welding torch, Dylan fabricates ornate iron gates out of junk metal scrap. The world learned of Dylan's new art at a show in London this weekend. In what sounds like a great beginning for a new song Dylan says he's attracted to gates because "They can be closed but at the same time they allow the seasons and breezes to enter and flow. They can shut you out or shut you in. And in some ways there is no difference."

Well, on the 14th of this month (September), a nice lady pulled up to my shop/studio and asked if I was the one who did all this artwork in front? I told her that I was guilty, and admitted that there was plenty more evidence inside. She asked if she could take pictures, and explained that she was with the Ocala Star Banner. Less than a half hour later she was gone, and I wondered what would come of it. To my pleasant surprise three days later, I was not in the obituaries, but right next to it on the same page, with a very nice article and photo layout. happy, happy, happy! Ralph

well folks, I've been talkin' bout it, so here it is, ( so far. ) I'm going to let it be for awhile, so I can catch up on other stuff I've let be. Pappy used to tell me, " hotshot, you don't finish nothin'." But I will finish somethin' along the way, Pappy.

well, yesterday I was working and a fellow comes in the studio and looks around. He picks up the guitar player from the Heavy Metal Band and asks, " how much " ? I say, well he's the guitar player. So, anyway We decide on a hundred bucks, and now I have to make another Stevie Ray or Jimi. Maybe add a keyboard and sax. Fun stuff

Yeah, I was out in the shop welding on some project, and I'm a little vertically changed, so I walk on my pants legs sometimes and they get frayed. so the next thing I know IT'S LIKE A SAUNA IN HERE!!! I take off my welding hood and look down, NO MOS PANTALONIES. For Real.

This project has taken up my time these past few days. It is a box for a pickup bed. It will be enclosed, and used by a furrier. I look at it as another piece of art work.

this quilt just blew me away, it is breath taking. It's a Florida treasure depicting wildlife and water conservation. I bought 5 one dollar chances for a drawing to be held in November. Proceeds will go toward conservation.

This is my display at the "Appleton In Bloom" at the Pioneer Garden Center. We met some very nice people, and the work was outstanding. It was a small show, and I found out I can be ready at the drop of a hat. Although I'd rather have more time.

well, this morning I was in the studio working on a new sign for Iron Art Gallery, when my sweetie comes in and tells me I was just invited to do a show this weekend. Not much time, but it's the Appleton in Bloom show, at the Pioneer Garden Club. So I'm getting it in gear. Hope to be posting some pics soon.

Thanks to everyone who visits Iron Art Gallery. It's so cool to have my work finally leave Sparr Fla. Thank you for all the LIKES, AND SHARES that motivate me to keep on keeping on. It makes it so much more meaningful.

THIS HORSE WAS A COMMISION, THE OWNER PAID, AND TOOK HIM HOME. THEN A HURRICANE BLEW HIM AROUND AND THE OWNER BROUGHT HIM BACK ALL FOWLED UP FOR REPAIRS. I STRIGHTENED HIM UP, BUT THE OWNER HAS PASSED AWAY, SO THE HORSE IS STILL OUT IN FRONT OF THE SHOP.
