You are my sunshine!

My art piece is a praxinoscope, inspired by an animation device that was invented in 1877. Crank the handle of an antique butter churn to spin the vintage terrarium with mosaic panels. Look into the mirrors, and follow the sun's motion. It's awesome that we live in one of the only states where you can watch the sunrise or the sunset right on the water. I love to create art that captures the beauty God puts before us! Psalm 65:8 (NLT) Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.
