The artist has always had a bit of wanderlust in him and love taking aimless journeys in his car to see what he might find on the back roads of America. Local dives for lunch, antique/curiosity shops, and roadside attractions always stops him in his tracks and can make even the most mundane journey an adventure. The artist was inspired for Tools of the Trade from a famous stop along Route 66, the Cadillac Ranch installation on the Texas prairie. The tools are attached at angles corresponding to those of the pyramids of Giza similar to the vintage Cadillacs buried deep in the Texas soil.
