Tears of a Legend

Here's the final version of a piece I posted as a work in progress - I ended up cutting out a piece from a Chinese Checkers board and gluing it over her eyes. Just in the city today, taking my work around in the Mission district. One of the stores I visited was Viracocha, whose owner sells interesting salvaged and reconstituted home furnishings to fund small-scale artistic productions, music and poetry, in the downstairs. Very sweet. I had been sent there by one of the proprietors of the Curiosity Shoppe, another wonderful Mission enterprise.

Makes me think of the black bars over people's faces when videos are censored. Interesting.

The dog's bollocks are still there, but YOU Artysparkly are a true legend! Respect.

Haven't given up on the mysterious man yet either.

It does remind me of the Glamor magazine "don't" section. Don't wear white shoes past labor day! Thanks for the links

Re: All puppies, all the time--I'd love to see what you'd do with some of those Victorian-era studio portraits that include dogs!

Wow, looks like you've been scoring some great finds Susan! This is an extraordinary piece here. Have you dropped by any galleries or spaces to get your work out there? Really loving it!
