Whimsical

Self-taught copper artist, Al De La Vega, has discovered

an artistic path that’s well coordinated with his sense of humor.

His diverse artwork is handcrafted from copper and enhanced

with various patinas creating one-of-a-kind hues in unique designs.

He shapes, bends, curves and tints the copper to conform to his minds images.

The finishes are worked and formed over time like fine wine becoming more beautiful with age.

He finds the finish is the essential component to every piece he creates.

He specializes in Florida sea-life and whimsical characters

that he creates in his mind which is filled with a huge sense of humor.

 When interviewed by the Sun Herald he was asked, “Why he creates such funny creatures?”

Without skipping a beat he quipped, “Life is too serious to take seriously.”

“If my artwork can make someone smile than I’ve accomplished what I’ve set out to do.”

Things We Grow

Driving back to our ship from our private tour of the rainforest,

our guide took us to a banana orchard and a fruit market.

We sampled native grown fruits and learned about their vegetables.
