Brenda's Horses was one of those [pieces which took a year to come together. The smashed washtub was one which my friend Brenda used to feed her goats. She lost the goats, as well as her horses and cats in the storm. Her husband pointed out the washtub to me when it was laying in the field months later, then delivered it to the makeshift studio I had set up on their property. I wanted to find a way to preserve the "3" on the bottom of the tub-and when I found these metal horses, it all came together. SOLD
