MODERN FAUX VINTAGE(whatever that is)
The finished piece for day 14 of Art Every Day Month. Polymer clay focal. Reminiscent of a pink scarab, faux wood finish. Sits on a plate of textured brass which sits on a plate of textured copper. Two fold formed copper leaves. Four faceted glass beads – and a partridge in a pear tree – (OK, but it was funny). The chain is wriggly tendril type links. I’m into heat rivets these days and random patterns (always into those). I love the look of liver of sulfur so I’m keeping that along with the fire patina. Looks wonderful on a sweater. All my work is original one-of-a-kind pieces, polished and waxed for protection. I’m a finish nerd.
Well – the major writing course I’ve been working on is over, a few final threads are hanging around in the cloud but no more writing for that one. I must say, I’m going to miss it and will be doing it again next year. I might have come up with a bit of a good story – a thriller of sorts, or so someone said, and I might develop it. I said might twice because I’m just not sure, and because I still have the second writing project going. Once that’s done, I’ll be gearing up to move into my new apartment – finally – will have all my art supplies, furniture, my wonderful Hotei collection, my books – my vintage phone from Argentina – in one place again.
Now I have to figure out what sort of art I’m doing for tomorrow.
Love, Love – don’t let the crazies get you down, they’re just bored. You don’t have to be.
