Prayer card, negative, cellophane tape, staples, cardboard strips and plastic packaging on cardboard, 8 x 5 inches, Greenwood, Seattle, March 26th, 2016.
And so two notes about this piece. First, it was finished last March, along with a couple of other pieces, and I put them in a pile and forgot about them completely. So I have not been as attentive to these matters as I could have been and am trying to correct that.
Second, originally this piece was called "It's So Cold in Alaska", and was put together January 28th, 2011 in San Francisco. At that point it was just the Jesus cross on cardboard and nothing else. I far prefer this.
And here's what happens when Mary Benscheidt comes over for an evening of art and Bombay gin. 12 x 9 inches, there's paint and a small block of very light wood I think it is (on paper). Dated 8/13/16 and created right here in Greenwood, Seattle. Up on our living room wall now.
