Hello Friends,

A while back I was approached to create some bowling pin art for a local BigBrothersBigSisters charity event. BBBS is a very commendable organization and before I had a chance to think about it I said "sure". I drove around with this pin (taking a bunch of pics of it) for a few weeks until I decided to create the Fauxberge Dream--inspired by the incredible work of Peter Carl Faberge and his Faberge Eggs.

There are about 150 Art Pins in this auction. Quite a cool collection. Here's a link where you'll find a link on the left side to the Pins of Marin auction.

I've posted a couple of lensbaby 3G pics of my finished effort.

I hope you have a chance to take a look at the auction.

Thanks,
Larry

Larry,
Beautifully done! The Faberge eggs stand among the world's great art, and you have captured the essence very well.

Thanks Rich--and still finding gold leaf floating around the house!

Thanks Jack. My wife tuned me into the art of Faberge. Spectacular and intricate work. Amazing artisans--I think there's a show in SF right now that we're going to check out.
