A couple of weeks ago, I posted a piece, titled "Do The Best You Can" on this blog.
I was working on it during my 'open studios' weekend, and one of my early visitors said, "please call me when this is finished, I want to buy this piece to hang in my office . . ."
Well, wouldn't you know, on the last day of open studios, another visitor fell in love with the then finished piece and bought it. So the following week, I got busy and made a new one for the first customer. (she said she like the color purple, so I used more purple colors on her piece).
Then, I decided to make a third piece to hang at the gallery. Here are all 3. All are similar, but each is one of a kind.
The quote, by Maya Angelou:
"Do the best you can (un)til you know better, then when you know better, do better."
"Til You Know"
"Do The Best You Can" ●
1" thick piece of oak butcher block covered in bits of text, images and tissues is the substrate for these. Scrabble tiles framed in wood spell out the Maya Angelou quote. A vintage wooden hanger tops each piece and a metal embellishment finishes each one.
