Last Summer, I came across this quote by Maya Angelou. I loved the quote, and decided to use it in a Scrabble assemblage piece.
So far I've made 4 using the same quote. The first 3 can be seen here. Each one is different and unique, yet the message is the same. They have all sold. I think it's because the words are simple, yet poignant and powerful:
"Do the best you can (un)til you know better,
then when you know better, do better." Maya Angelou
Found wood and vintage wooden hanger are covered with various papers and tissue, scrabble tiles spell out the quote. Chop sticks and metal embellishments finish the piece.
My apologies to everyone for my absence on this blog . . . after the holidays, we went away on vacation - we spent 10 glorious days on Kauai, and then after we got home, I think I just got lazy about posting . . . But I am back now, hoping to get back on to my weekly posting schedule. I am far behind, and have lots of new work to show you.
Husband Walter and a glorious sunset, Kauai, Hi
I do hope everyone is doing great.
It's a New Year, with new opportunities to make good art!
