First Kiss

"First Kiss"
"We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine." - Eduardo Galeano 

Living in Wine Country, this has become a favorite quote.  
A nicely beveled piece of wood found at the flea market was used as the substrate for this piece. To snugly hold the scrabble tiles, I created a frame using wooden chop sticks. The entire frame is covered, front and back, in vintage text with a tissue overlay. A copper butterfly finishes the piece.
