Last spring I was discussing the need of art that would really be a sunshade and shelter, in the front pasture of the property of Mary Jane and Bill Weyher in Springdale. There was plenty of free materials on hand, but especially 10 feet long split rail fencing.
Day 2, a few days later, with more help from David Pettite and management from Eric Bonner, the wings were added.... The wings have been supported with a long metal strip, with the posts wired and screwed to that for support, along with tension wires strategically placed. We kept one large leaning post at the front to take the weight, and removed the pole and ladders, it stood! And we left it at that for the day... Almost self supporting...
Steve has gone back and made it completey free standing as it was intended... I need to get over there and take more pictures.
Thank you MaryJane and Bill for letting me do this project and to my other assistants Steve, David and Eric.
