Larry Beausoleil

Larry Beausoleil -(sunshine in French) is the other half of "TWO FRIENDS creative metal sculptures".  He and Don MacDonald are partners in the awardwinning copper wall hangings and freestanding sculptures.    Don states that Larry is the perfectionist when they work together. This talent adds elegance to their art, as well as, creative, imaginative and whimsical. Larry's career in architecture drafting led him to drawing plans for custom-built homes. His precision in line drawing allows the complicated structures to take form.

Four years ago, Larry and his wife of fifty-three years retired and bought a house in Sun City. The ceilings were covered in copper. Larry took it all down and stored it in his garage. While building sets and props for the Sun City Theatre, Larry met Don and the two began to figure out how they could use the copper. At first, they made wall hangings and toys. Soon, they entered art shows, winning first place in a Washington State art show with "Hopi Hoop Dancer." They have won medals and ribbons in thirteen shows. Their "Thunderbird," won first place in the Spring PAG 2014 /show.   After Larry's garage was empty, the pair had to buy copper and they still use only copper in their sculptures.

Their current masterpiece is a three dimensional, layered, freestanding horse named, "The Wild One." In addition, these two geniuses are building another "Raggedy Ann," a freestanding charmer like the one they brought to a PAG meeting.

Another versatile skill Mr. Beausoliel has is artistic woodworking. Turning bowls and vases from hard woods has earned him first place here and in WA State. His bowls are fashioned with different types of wood for the color instead of paint, such as, Hickory, Walnut, Mahogany, Citrus, and from Africa- the Red,

Yellow or Purple Heart trees. Wooden toys are also made for his many grandkids. Larry's children have inherited his clever genes. One daughter is an artist, another daughter is a wildlife photographer. His son, as Larry says, "Can do anything creative with his hands."   Larry's philosophy, "Keep busy and live a long life."
