And speaking of the groove of things, here's a little something I've been working on lately! It's inspired by the latest album, The Hazards of Love, by The Decemberists, whom you may have seen on The Colbert Report the other night.
But Father, don't you fear
your children now are here
singing oh, the hazards of love
The story is that this guy (the Rake) decided he didn't really like his children so he killed them all, and then they come back and do away with him. In short. That's just part of the album. It's sort of amazing.
ANYWAY. Yes. It's a 4x6 shadowbox as a frame. I painted the inside white. Cut out the Rake from some white cardstock, and the ghosts of his children are from tissue paper (which is extremely hard to cut!). I left the back off to let the light through. I think it looks pretty darn cool!
Well that's all for now. I'm working on some new paintings and lots of other things. Tata and see you soon!
