[drumroll...] the third of 3 [and oy.]
|Here's a virtual version of what they look like together - I'm happy to be nearing completion on these (*still need to frame, pack and ship them).|
|I decided to use real buttons and use the sewing of the|
buttons as part of the attachment of the layers
(so the buttons are buttons and working as buttons,
if that makes any sense)
|...and a real chain for the watch. The button on the glove is|
the same as Columbina's earrings, repeating some
of the elements in different ways across the three pieces.
(I particularly enjoy the drawn in shadow of the
watch on the glove)
I also kept working on the bunny bucks, carving 2 blocks ("A" and "B" - labelled before the date).
|with a coin for scale (- the bunny is cuter than George Washington, no?)|
|then I printed.42 of them...by hand (!)|
|I enjoy the mini Hudson whale|
I gave them away.
I also did the prep work and started this ball point drawing on a polyester lithography plate.
Other art goings on...
I went to an opening of Five Decades of work by artist El Anatsui at Jack Shainman's The School in Kinderhook
|Also, the town of Kinderhook is pretty, (though, to me, it sort of felt disturbingly manicured (though it may have been my edge-of-panic mood?)).|
|Ryder Cooley & Dustbowl Fairies|
Last, but definitely not least! I went to a terrific musical performance by Ryder Cooley & Dustbowl Fairies and Melora Creager - launching the Dustbowl Fairies' indiegogo campaign. I thought they sounded incredible. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the campaign will meet and more than meet, and looking forward to hearing the completed album!
and in non-art (but still sort of art) news...
I baked for one of the first times since
before Christmas, and the doily is from
the same set as Columbina's collar - lol.
(You can take the artist out of the studio...)
