"You and Me" (again)

 
"You and Me" (again)
A couple of weeks ago, I, along with 6 other assemblage artists, opened an 'all assemblage' show at a local community center. On August 13th, I posted a piece on this blog 'almost identical' to this one. The first "You and Me" sold to a local Chef who happened to be at the center the day we were hanging the show (thankfully she agreed to take delivery of the piece after the show closes).

A few days later I got a call from someone who asked if I would make her one "just like the one in the show" . . . I agreed.  So the one posted here (#2) now resides in Seattle, in the office of a woman who works with an organization that provides low income housing.  She said "this piece will make the perfect statement to what all of us at my organization work towards". (yey!)

So this is "You and Me" #2.  I want to make this clear, because a couple of days ago I got a request for a "You and Me" #3 . . . I normally do not like to do 'repeats', because all of my pieces are one of a kind, but I will, this time, because I really love the quote, and I am delighted to see other people love it too:

" I LAUGH I CRY I HOPE I TRY I HURT I NEED
I FEAR I LOVE AND I KNOW YOU DO TOO
SO WE ARE REALLY NOT THAT DIFFERENT YOU AND ME"

(I will embellish each one differently so each piece is in fact one of a kind)

A small wood cabinet door found at Habitat for Humanity's Re-Store is the perfect frame for this piece. The door is covered, front and back, in rich, vibrant green and red tissues, bits of vintage sheet music, and hand written letters and pattern pieces. The piece is ready to hang or sit on a stand.
