Route 81 PA

Long story short – had a chance meeting with “Son of the Sculptor” David Hayes while traveling down rt 81 south of Wilkes-Barre PA.

I noticed (what at first I thought was some scrap – only because I was too far away) a pickup truck carrying a sizable sculpture. After tailing and otherwise harassing the person driving I convinced him to pull into a rest stop so that I could have a closer look. It was then I was introduced to “Son of the Sculptor” David Hayes.

We had a great conversation about his dad and his work and the efforts being taken to share this incredible collection with others. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of David and the book he shared with me. I have been telling this story to all of my friends and I am extremely grateful for the meeting.

I have included a link to his site that contains tons of information about him and his work. I hope you all take the time to have a look.

Another interior shot of the studio. Taken shortly after the Western Loudoun County Studio Tour. The Tour was a great success. Thanks to all those who came out to meet me and see the studio. Have a look at the Purcellville Gazette article about the tour!
