“Fortuna” * $3,500-

“Fortuna” (pictured above) is a one-of-a-kind, bronze sculpture. The piece features a 5″ x 1.5″ pentagon shaped, beige marble base. The overall measurements are 27.5″ H x 10″ W x 7.5″ D, and it weighs about 30 lbs. This sculpture is unique in all of the world. Unless someone else attempts to make a copy of the work, it will remain completely unique. The mold deteriorated and was destroyed about five years ago. The first bronze that I cast from the mold was titled “Suckerfish Ball” (pictured below). The fish figure on the first casting was poured with a metal commonly referred to as white bronze, giving “Suckerfish Ball” its distinctive metallic look. “Fortuna”, on the other hand, is cast in Everdur Silicon Bronze – an industry standard alloy that is about 96% copper. I applied a warm-toned, polychromatic patina to the finished bronze, because I wanted to give the piece a more realistic (koi fish) color palette. The metallic tones on the band around the ball and the decorative dollar signs are where I decided to use a transparent patina to let the bronze show through.

“Suckerfish Ball” now resides in the collection of Phil and Lyn Rogers in Tennessee. “Fortuna”, at the top of the page, is currently looking for her forever home!

I chose to change the title and the patina of the second casting to give “Fortuna” a more positive presence. The original concept for the sculpture was asking the question “What are people suckers for?” Money, play and stardom were the three answers that I focused on when I sculpted the ball portion of the piece. When I transformed the second casting into “Fortuna”, I intended to show how money, play and stardom are not negative in and of themselves, they can also be representative of good fortune.

In the current moment, I am offering up “Fortuna” to raise money for tuition to attend college and expenses related to the initiation of the “Grand Providentia Projection – A True Story as Yet Unfolding…”. The price to buy this bronze sculpture is $3,500.00. The cost includes shipping to any address in the continental USA, and sales tax, which I will be sure to pay if it is sold. This is actually a very reasonable price for this sculpture. If you look around at comparable bronze artwork, by living artists, I’m confident that you will see what I mean when I say reasonable. You can also visit my Saatchi Art website at, to see how I’ve priced my artwork there. Keep in mind that Saatchi Art takes a 35% commission from the sale price, and I would also need to prepare the work for shipping (build a crate).

Film Journey & The Alt Unity

Getting Down to Some Nitty Nuts and Gritty Bolts

Gathering Awareness – Entry #16

Transformative entertainment would be one way to describe where I’m headed with all of this. The blog, the growing involvement with film, the intentions to follow through on that growth by earning a graduate degree in film directing, the Grand Providentia Projection, and recently, the introduction of the Alt Unity are all flowing in the direction of a transformative entertainment experience. An immersive real-world experience, rooted firmly in our collective conscious intentions. I use the word transformative because I expect that the effects of what is to be manifested will be transformational for those involved directly with the production, but also for anyone who is attracted by the entertainment value of it. I expect also that it will be transformational for our planet, and all the lifeforms that inhabit it. In an expansive way, it might also transform our conscious connection with the Universe.

“Mechanical Attraction” – Providentia – detail

Here’s the idea in a nitty gritty nutshell: As an independent filmmaker, with the help of the Alt Unity, I intend to produce a continuous, reality-style, running documentary, which will be focused on the realization of the Grand Providentia Projection. Simultaneously, we’ll be producing a fictional version of the same story using all of the traditional movie making techniques (and hopefully introducing a few innovative techniques of our own). Here’s the twist – As the factual and the fictional productions are becoming a reality, we will introduce collisions, integrations, cross-migrations, and a number of other blending techniques to arrive at a place where no one person is ever really certain about which elements are fictional and which are factual. And all of this will take place under the umbrella of an organization that has been consciously conceived with the intention to aid in the healing of humanity, preserve the environment we depend on, and bring conscious awareness to the forefront of our decision making for the future.

During the coming three years, while I am achieving a film degree, it is my intention to grow the Alt Unity. Its growth will be measured in terms of human connections based on a common cause, and the support and resources gathered to bring this vision to reality. It is likely that it will be primarily internet based in the beginning, but I expect that it won’t be long before the hands-on work begins. It’s sure to be collectively transformational!
