Completed and presented concept designs for artistic, steel recycling containers for a Providence, Rhode Island, public works street project. I am again working with my colleagues, associated with the Steelyard, in Providence, Rhode Island. I will post designs and pertinent photo's as this project develops. Photo's of a previous public works project in Providence, installed benches commission page. Link to Paul's Facebook installed Bench Page.


Completed design and production of several experimental versions of my popular Aero Bunny bronze art. I have always wanted to create a large version of this work but never got around to it. I have now created a larger version, 13 inches high, 22 inches long, and 12 inches wide, made of poured concrete. To add color, I stained the poured bunnies several ways to add a more visually appealing work.  I feel that this makes this work a very affordable, and durable lawn or garden accent piece. I will debut this work at the upcoming Art Fair in Fairfax, Virginia, the weekend of April 30th, 2011.  Pictures will be taken at the fair and added to my web site after I return from the fair.


Completed a private commission relief depicting a mother and child as a gift commissioned by
the husband of a new Doctor. Note: Due to time constraints no pictures were taken before shipping this commission to patron.


Completed benches that Paul designed and made with Randy Shapiro and Monica Shinn courtesy of the Steelyard and the Hope Street Merchants Association in Providence Rhode Island.

A variation of my large "Cactus Man" sculpture is now installed, via a two year loan agreement, with the Tohono Chul Park Inc., in Oro Valley, AZ. Link to installed Cactus-Man in park or via Park's Facebook page.


Completed three new bronze works that express my feeling about my father's recent heart surgery and two new bronze works that are part of my animal series. Also, added new vivid color coating option for the Aero Bunny. Click on picture or title to view these web pages.

Won a commission generated by a church in Oro Valley, AZ. The life size bronze piece featured an adult male, a young boy and girl, and a book. The adult was explaining a passage from the book to the children. To tie up any loose ends, with the Town of Oro Valley's Public Art Commission, Paul discovered that there was a local "un-documented" exemption, for school's and church's, to the town's 1% of the building project cost, for Public Art provision. Paul asked the project architects to verify his findings before proceeding with the project. After consulting with their Oro Valley contacts, they verified Paul's discovery. When the architect firm notified the church, that they were exempt from this requirement, the architect firm told Paul, "The church was ecstatic about saving the money. You (Paul) are definitely a hero". After Paul's proactive action and discovery, all parties agreed that the signed contract be voided.
