The side of an old building in Emeryville. The varations of this wall remind me of a work of Art. But it is only a building that has been repaired over and over and soon will come down to make way for more Condos in Emeryville.

Paul Revere's work has visited my studio two times. I was surprised to learn may years ago that Paul Revere could not make a living as a Silversmith. He supplemented his income with installing copper roofing. I think of the infamous picture of him holding the silver teapot and his engraver close by, that is how I saw him. Now I imagine him a hardworking roofer as well as a Smith.
