But I have managed some studio time, thankfully...the perfect place to escape the realities of things like the weather.
This is a small piece....about 8" wide and maybe 5" tall at the highest point. It's called Guess Who?
I like to do these tiny pieces sometimes, just as an escape. I love the colors, shapes and graphics on various game pieces, and at times, I just want to see a bunch of them together....dice, checkers, chess men (the bishop), bingo pieces, and some unindentified ones. The little "grid" in front of the bishop was made by slicing a masonite chess board into thin slices with the tabletop band saw I have. (Love that thing!) The whole piece is housed in a little drawer that I painted black and then added little "feet" to it so it can either hang or stand.
We'll start talking about the April giveaway this week. Stay tuned!
