4″ x 4″ mixed media on stretched canvas
background painted in acrylic
hand-lettered with gel pens and applied with decoupage
action pieces used: hammer, letoff buttons, flange, jack, washer
So, I had a tall stack of 4×4 canvases and wasn’t sure how I was going to use them. I mused over this predicament while standing in front of the cabinet where I store my cleaned, separated, and sorted action pieces. Opening the drawers one by one, I pulled out an assortment of pieces and arranged them on the canvas, leaving room for a message of some sort. Eventually I settled on the phrase, “Without PIANO, my life would be in PIECES.” I mean, I was looking at a hodge podge of piano pieces. What more can I say?
