The small sculpture on the end table is by Tom Corbin
, a Kansas City artist. Corbin lives not far from me and I have the pleasure of running into his lovely wife quite often. On occasion she has their Standard Poodle, Roxy, with her. They have a wonderful piece, "Woman Walking," in their garden and Rosie and I admire her on our walks.
I then spied another Corbin piece in Southern Accents
November/December issue. While I've singled out the smaller pieces, much of Corbin's work is quite large, in fact, life sized.
Still, I have a weakness for the smaller works. The study, Girl with Purse II, is my current crush. To see more of Corbin's work tick here
; he is widely represented throughout the states including Holly Hunt in both Chicago and New York and Jerry Pair in Atlanta.
A bit of trivia, though I have never seen it, I know many of you are fans of the interiors in the film A Perfect Murder
. Apparently one of Corbin's pieces was used in the sets. That's my kind of "I spy."
