Herman Thompson II

A while back I did a post about folk artist Herman Thompson who lives in SC.  Herman does not sell his work and I have wanted a piece for years.  I was thrilled to see him again recently at the SC State Museum and even more thrilled when he gave me a piece of his work.     Here you also see an armadillo Herman was working on that day, it is made from stove pipe and an old rake. Audrey is here with a giant 10 foot metal snake.  In the bottom photo Herman signs his work, a great green fish that now hangs on my wall.  I was so excited that day!    The State Museum has several large pieces Herman made, one is an old shack with folks cooking a pig over an open fire.  Herman is a master and a treasure.
