This piece was created outdoors during the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival. It is our city at that time of year: giant trees by the water, compelled to movement by the downtown vibrations.
See how it was made.
Displayed and auctioned at Isaac’s Way, Fredericton, NB. Half of proceeds went toward children’s music lessons.

Well hi there. Brother CE8080, is it? Kind of a handful for a name if you ask me. How ’bout Cece, can we agree? Very well then, let’s move on.
You’ve got a tough act to follow, just so’s you know. But not just any old machine follows me home. You’ve got some kind of charm, I can see. And so many bells and whistles. Perhaps we could get to know one another…
Alright, I see you’ve got skills. But do I really need so many stitches? A tiny blade to slice my bobbin thread? Seems lavish, really.
But perhaps I deserve a little luxury in a sewing machine. Maybe you see right through me. I am a little lusty for your one-step buttonholes….
Don’t bat your pretty eyelashes at me! You know I can’t resist. Oh alright, I suppose you can stay the night. Just a sampler and then away with you first thing in the morning!
Well, maybe just after breakfast….
