Sculpture Found Objects welded, Herkimer diamond finished in oil.A long time friend and Mentor of mine passed on Monday, heres what the paper says-

Edward J. “Sonny” Johnson Jr. WILTON – Edward J. “Sonny” Johnson Jr., 80, of Ballard Road, passed away Monday, Oct. 27, 2014 at his home of more than 40 years surrounded by his family including his “best buddies”, his three cats. Born on Feb. 8, 1934 in Hadley, he was the son of the late Edward Sr. and (Loretta) Johnson and the late Margaret (Daniels) Johnson and Ray Allen. Sonny attended Corinth High School, and joined the United States Army, serving during the 1950’s. He married Jehri (Petteys) Bonner and the couple resided in Wilton for many years. She died Oct. 13, 2010 after many years of marriage. Sonny began his salvage business on River St. in Warrensburg, with cars being delivered to his backyard, where they were prepaired to be crushed by a banton crane and steel weight. From Warrensburg, he moved his family to Marion Avenue in Corinth, and became known as the “Tin King”, specializing in scrap, car bodies and auto sales. He was a true pioneer in the salvage business for he was the first to have a mobil auto crusher north of the Mason-Dixon line. He crushed cars from Maine to West Virginia and even on Nantucket Island. He knew and was known throughout the salvage business from Maine to Florida. In the early 1970’s he purchased 81 Ballard Road in Wilton and pursued his dream of owning his own “Junk Yard” and building a business with his sons, called Johnsons Auto Crushers and Johnsons Auto Sales. He was proud of the fact that he was still operating his Wilton business after over 40 years. Sonny always had a love for fast cars. He raced his “V-8” in Warrensburg and other local tracks in the 1950’s. He won a few and wrecked a few, but enjoyed every fast minute. – See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/saratogian/obituary.aspx?pid=172977203#sthash.AbIaopeo.dpuf

Heres The Word I said: Sonny was a friend and mentor of mine for over 20 years. In my experience he played jokes and picked on and with me. He was never afraid to share insight, inspire or push me further. He loved to talk, his children, animals, vehicles, art and enhanced the world over a good cup of coffee. He made an positive impact shining a inner light and I respected him. I will miss his company. My deepest warmest regards to his family. May peace and happiness fill their life.

I was asked by his family to make sculpture for them to display in the place of flowers at the funeral home. Sculpture Found Objects welded, Herkimer diamond finished in oil.

Experiences Grow a Strong Vocabulary for an Artist

Most of you who are close to me know the last 6 months of my life, have been extreme. I have had one focus in which all my energy, time & decisions had been made to assist another being through their toughest journey – illness to recovery. I can finally say we have made it over the waterfall and now enjoyed re-building moments of simplicity and health.

Thank you all- Nurses, Doctors, Friends, Family, Unknown persons, Clients, for the Gifts, Money, Food, Flowers, Vehicles, Rides, Tools, Housing, Kindness, Understanding, Patients, Support, Education, Lendings, Time, Advice, Love, and just plain being there when and if I needed. During this you find out who the good souls are and how the universe delivers what you need when you need it! I can’t say Thank you enough!!

WarHorse the not to be missed Performance at Proctors

It been a while since my last post but travel, family, holidays, work have moved at an exceptional pace leaving no time to update a blog. This post is going to be about a team of artist to whom get an absolute standing ovation from my friends and I- War Horse shown at Proctors in Schenectady, NY-

Wow!~ I can’t say enough about how good this production was. I and my not so willing to go to the theater companions, were entertained the entire time. So much so that I didn’t even notice the time fly by.

The mechanics of the puppets were phenomenal.the theater was full and yet not a sound from the audience, as the motions of the horses were so exact you could easily say they were actual horses. The puppets captured your heart with ears that indicated emotion, skin that quivered with a pat of an actor’s hand, breath that held life. The puppets captured the in the moment act of life with the harmony of working with the other actors. The lighting offered drama intrigue and tons of emotional stimuli for the viewer’s response. There’s an odd shaped film screen that plays an artsy background using minimal color, which also really worked to enhance the experience. The Actors worked with passion expression and tons of energy! The level of artistic integrity, physical strength this performance commanded from each and every participant amazed and full kept me and my friends attention.

In the close a standing ovation – if you haven’t seen this production it is a must for all ages. I dint post pictures because I don’t know the rules but you can see allot on Joie and his supporting puppets, makers and the actors on YouTube.
