Ah! A Relic of the past. This palette assemblage--fabrics, leather, wire, wood, and a fabulous figure purchased in Paris who decries his story at the thumbhole of the palette--resurfaced to haunt me tonight. Hundreds of wooden palettes were decked out as a Vermont Arts Council challenge a couple of years back. This piece never really got its due so tonight it has claimed my attention again. I find I am intrigued by the odd surface or shape or theme of a show; then I dive into creation and enjoy it, maybe broadening my capabilities, but doesn't it take me off my focused path of the work I need to do, like a body of paintings...into which these oddities do not fit. Always questions.
Today I was working on a fresh website, looking for images I couldn't find, finding others I didn't know what to do with.
