Today's time in the dungeon "studio" was--if I may say so--quite productive. I completed this assemblage, which is housed in a 16 X 5 X 4" sewing cabinet drawer. Rarely do I complete an entire project in one day, so this is indeed a banner occasion.
The focal point of this assemblage is a tintype photo. The photo's subject, to me, has the look of someone who's seen the inside of quite a few saloons. So the piece's title is sort of tongue-in-cheek, celebrating his life of drinkin', smokin', and carousin'.
As with most of my work, this one also includes a fair share of found objects, such as strips I cut from various cigar boxes, an old medicine bottle, some .22 shells, and a metal Marbo heel plate.
