I'm So Excited

And I just can't hide it, I'm about to lose control and I think I like it... (disco ball, black lights)....

Michael A built the frame to size and Mike K spray painted the edges with enamel.  Thamks guys! 

This will support We, Together, Keep Watch, 15 7/8ths x 10 1/4th. 

It isn't adhered to the support yet.  Need to investigate which adhesive to use and see what I have on the shelf.

Some questions I am posing to myself about this series are, do I want them the same size; if not, what by way of construction,  technique, or/and imagery will unify them; do I want to do cloth studies for each one. 

I have the cartoon sketch for Song of Solomon complete, but I think to do it the same size will crowd the space (I might do it anyways just to see).  The themes I see in the sketch (and the book) are masculinity, a coming of age/walking the crossroads, vulnerability,  violence, and escape.  I aimed for showing the tension and constant sense of drama in the narrative.

My friend Bev will be here soon...gotta go.


  1. I am always in awe of your vision, and am waiting to see them become realities.

  2. cool! can't wait to see as project comes along...
