Delbert Beckham - State Fair of Texas Totem Garden
Here's Delbert's totems and they are wonderful. The name is Eye Can. I first met Delbert and his darling wife Wilma when we did the Arboretum art show. I misunderstood Wilma's name and thought it was Willa. She told me to think of the Flintstones - Fred and Wilma. I loved that movie. Especially loved Elizabeth Taylor in the movie and her little white dog. BlackJack would have thought the little dog was a morsel. Now would be the time to pull out a picture of BlackJack and Elizabeth Taylor's little dog. But this is about Delbert. A wonderful artist, welder and teacher. Delbert will also have a sculpture there. I especially asked him to bring his wonderful flowers he had at the Arboretum. They dance. There's nothing like colorful metal dancing flowers in a garden, don't you think? Come to the State Fair and see them dance.
