This morning, whilst up in my studio (well, if I'm going to be an artist it's about time I used the proper words! LOL) I was inspired to create a piece of assemblage to celebrate the New Year. The pictures I took are awful and this scan isn't much better but I wanted to share it anyway on this first clean slate day of 2007. :o)
As the pic is so bad, I feel a little explanation is required! So, the base is a piece of plywood (found in the outhouses) with some paint slapped on. attached to this is a sweet little cake tin with a lightbulb wired on. You can't see at all clearly but I have added the word "hope" on the lightbulb. Last additions were the verdigris screw and the wire with beads as a hanger. I wanted to make something with meaning (to myself) to start this new chapter in my life and I think I have achieved that, in alot of ways this piece sums up what 2007 is going to be all about for me and I'm really pleased with it. ;o) Just wish I had a decent pic of it to share - trust me , it's better in real life than it looks here!! Wishing everyone a happy, creative, inspirational, whatever you wish for yourself, New Year!
