The book covers are painted, the interiors distressed, the rack completed, and I just have the final touches to consider before I call the art DONE! I have had this piece on my mind for quite awhile now, so it feels as if I am just about to complete a really good book. I am looking forward to finding out the end of the story, but know that I will miss reading it when I am finished.
My friend, and fellow artist, Crystal Rodrigue, gave me a stool to use for the final touch, which helped keep me from continued obsessing (long story that I will not share for fear of obsessing). And, finally, a gigantic thanks goes to James MacLeod for the terrific rack that he fabricated for me. James is a woodworker extraordinaire!
I have included a couple of photographs to show the piece almost completed.... I will have one more posting to show the piece installed and to explain the symbolism involved.. Thanks for reading.
Happy to have you here. This is where you will see work in progress, tips about making art, seeing art, and enjoying art. You will also see ways to live life like an artist.
