So what inspired me to create this piece?
I have a friend named Matt Supinski who is a well known fly fishing guide and author who found an old rotting bench on the side of the road someone had thrown out with the trash. When Matt was driving by, he saw it and immediately fell in love with this priceless treasure so full of character and thoughts of the stories it could tell. He put the bench in his truck and headed back home where he proudly found a very special place for it on his deck. When his wife saw it however, she told him he could take that piece of junk right back where he found it… but the bench still sits there today. Reminded me of an old saying, “One Man’s Junk is Another Man’s Treasure”, so that is why I named this piece “Supinski’s Treasure”.
