RB Scrap: "Salvaged Steel Recycled Art & Mixed Media Mosaic Mural" Work in Progress

Richard has been working on the salvaged steel sculptures on the junk yard fence line for several years now. This year we are planning to finally complete it. So, Richard's been hard at work cutting out all sorts of whimsical animals and trees from salvaged steel. We met a very talented painter who will paint a mural. I will mosaic several of the trees and we plan to offer several trees to the community kids to paint this summer. 


 Richard with long-time friend Larry. They are planning the layout of the whimsical animals that Richard cut out for the gate front. Notice the mouse by Richard's foot. 4/6/14.

 Brian helped with placement, while Richard directed. Larry was ready to weld the animals and trees into to place.

  Richard recently  collaborated with very talented painter, Smezs Lorinzer. Richard gave Smezs this salvaged steel sculpture to paint and this is what he returned! We are excited to continue the collaboration by having Smezs work on the junk yard mural with us. Smezs gets Richard's whimsical aesthetic. With this much vibrant attention to detail, we feel the mural will be dynamic and breathtaking.
