On the Road

No, it's not quite what you think. We really are at home. At least for a while.

I told you about the art explosion thing goin' on with me. Well...for several months I've been picking up road trash. You know, old metal bottle caps, wire, pieces of tire tread, etc.

And it has been in bags. or boxes. or piles.

Last week some of it got together in my brain. And I really like the way it turned out. It is done on a 16x20 canvas covered in fabric. So here it is:
I took it to church Wednesday night. It was interesting to see who "got it" and who didn't. Most men laughed. Although a few "got it".
Some women didn't get it either. At least they didn't laugh--they just said "Oh. That's nice."
But the ones who "got it" really liked it. So mostly I am encouraged. Because the picture is small compared to its actual size, it loses some of the detail. Those are wheel weights on the edges of the picture of the earth. The scripture on the card that goes in the pocket is John 3:16.
To those of you who "get it" I hope it brings a blessing to you.
Piece number 2 is already in the works.

OK that is just amazing. Is it going to hang in your home?


Hope your weekend was delightful!

Eventually I hope to sell it. I'm working on making enough pieces to hopefully display somewhere. I'm hoping to have piece number 2 done tomorrow. Thanks for your encouraging words!!

Blessings & Hugs!
