Wade Wharton’s Newest Creations

I try to visit Wade Wharton every five or six weeks but I think it had been since November since my last visit, and after last week’s Huntsville Times feature, we were really trying to find a good time to get together.  I think Wade has done some of his best work the last quarter of 2011 and currently:

(new) Caterpillar:

(new) Thin Buddha (remember when Buddha fasted to achieve clarity, although his clarity came after the fast was over?):

I think this is one of his greatest pieces ever.

(old) Dragonfly, from behind.

This is a story of Creation — the devil as a demon, and Adam — upset over the trickery with Eve — as cowboy (even with spurs!)…there’s also a strategically-placed maple leaf:

Inside, Wade has this piece he’s done, of the Last Supper:

Sounds like a couple of new exhibits may be coming his way soon…

Wade loves visitors to his art environment; email me if you’d like to see him!
