The borrower swoops in to make off with your most prized possessions…the love letter from Berthe; your best horse’s tooth; your tiniest poison bottles; your magic crystal; your old tv tubes. He gleefully watches over them with a lock and key and waits, for your back to turn, so he can return to scamper off with more treasures for his hoard.
GIFTED to Robert
Big shadow box (13″ X 13″). (SOLD)
DETAILS: poison bottles, crystal, lock and key, t.v. tubes, watch front, a gauge, watch parts, old horse tooth, antique clock gears, an old tap, a label from a bottle of Chateau Neuf du Pape, a 1908 French love letter from Berthe, the ace of spades, an old slide ruler, an old French receipt from a Parisian chemist lab and a French document from 1794.
I must admit that this piece is somewhat autobiographical….
NEWS FLASH: This piece was chosen as one of three out of more than 100 entries in the CVAC Spring Art Show by judges to have a jury talk and won one of the BEST IN SHOW awards. Apparently it will go off with the others on a tour of other galleries in the area before returning home to roost.
