And by donuts, I mean postcards. It's a new month, which can mean only one thing: it is time to fill mail art subscriptions. I got through more than half on Monday; to be continued on Monday next.
Many projects are still in-progress so they make for lousy blog post copy. Below is the flowchart that keeps me on task.
I am laboring to finish the work below, which I will call (for lack of a better title) Double-Sided Paintings. When your eyes get tired of looking at one side, just flip it over. Each painting is an etched mixed-media composition on quarter-inch medium density fiberboard, measuring approximately 11.25" x 16" hanging from a 1/16" stainless steel cable. I have been "styling" them this week; trying to figure out the best way to photograph them. I have plaster walls, which is a real bummer, so hit some snags with installing them in Room 817. I was going for a clean, gallery-style presentation.
Back to my efforts at styling, which I thought I perfected back in my Neiman Marcus visual display days. But, unfortunately, I am generally unsatisfied with the shots I took this week. This is one of the better ones, however, the typewriter is feeling like a hipster cliché at this point, which makes me sad because I love this Underwood. The font is exquisite. Not that you would know that.
