The End


"The End"

"EVERYTHING WILL BE OK IN THE END, IF IT'S NoT OK IT'S NOT THE END" John Lennon

As we bring 2013 to a close, and anticipate the dawn of the new year, this is the ultimate advise, don't you think? 
In other words, no matter how things look today, with a new year, we all have the opportunity to get it right, to do it better.

Those of you you follow my work know I have used this quote before in other pieces.  I like it! And I am not alone. Customers who come into the gallery where I show my work, seem to like it too. This piece sold a few days before Christmas.

Initial research credited this quote to John Lennon, however, further digging  revealed a variety of origins, from a recent movie, to a Brazilian fiction writer. In fact, it has even been credited to No One (Anonymous).

I like this quote because it is memorable  I like it because it can be used as a simple general statement of curiosity and how truly free from complication life and the world around us can be.

A wooden box has been covered, front and back in various papers, including text, music, magazine images and tissues, frame the vintage children's alphabet blocks that spell out the quote.
A small frog on top finishes the piece.  Ready to hang.

  3. I'm having trouble getting photos and images to load from your site today. Haven't had trouble anywhere else, thankfully.

    Clever and creative piece with the little frog at the top. I always love your block assemblages. They put a smile on my face.

    You asked about my e-mail. I was worried, since I don't own (or have control over) the account. My friend Scott set it up for me, so I wondered if he had somehow deleted it. I seldom check my e-mail anymore, so I made sure all was well. Don't know what happened, but it's still there. I'll send you an e-mail and make sure everything works.
