A year ago or so, I worked on this piece, and when it was finished, I loved it. It was bolder than anything I had done before. The elements that came together in this piece seemed a bit more audacious than the 'bits and bling' I normally incorporate in my work.
To name just a few of the elements, this piece contains parts of license plates, a bullet belt, guitar tuning keys that are strung with green fishing line, car emblems, a coat check from Madrid's Del Prado Museum, a hologram, and bicycle chain . . . . all set on a black background.
As I said earlier, I loved the piece when it was finished, because it was so different from any of my other work, but I was a bit cautious about bringing out in public.
As is typical for me, I was under deadline, and in a few days, a new show needed to be hung in the gallery, so after snapping a few quick photographs, I took the piece to the gallery and hung it thinking I would come back and take more photos at a later date if needed.
The very next day, the piece sold! It was gone. That's the good news.
However, to my chagrin, when I looked at the images I'd taken of the piece I was disappointed, feeling they were mediocre, and didn't really show the finished piece well. Time passed and I forgot to post about it on this blog.
One of main the reasons I decided to maintain a blog was to be able to keep track of the work I produce. So here I am, a year later, posting this piece titled "Living In Awe". . . because most of the time I AM . . . .
have a great weekend!
