I tagged along for the ride as Waukesha artist Tom Noll said goodbye to the baby he has fed and nurtured these last several months. "The Founder" has kept him awake many late nights, but it was time to turn him loose and trust you've raised him right.
I was very fortunate to have met Mike K. at Tom's. He let me shoot video from his back seat and kept me safe. A dozen or more loud Harleys paraded around Waukesha before delivering the sculpture to Marshall Auto Body for clear coating. The weather was perfect cycling weather, but broke while we were at Marshall's looking at the four other sculptures. As you know it poured rain and wind last night, so we were fortunate to have made it just in time.
I have to thank Tom and Bev for their hospitality. Last night was the first time I'd met them and feel I know them already. Their home is filled with art and creative spaces and the backyard is a living sculpture. By the time we got back the storm had passed and it was the calmest, nicest evening to hang outdoors on the patio. There's so much to see in an artist's backyard I think I could've taken pictures for hours.
