I've been busy lately, so my time in the studio has been significantly limited--bummer. That said, I did manage this weekend to finish another piece. I started with a cigar box. Some older cigar boxes have interesting graphics--so oftentimes I simply leave the outside of the box as-is. The graphics on this particular box, though, didn't impress me, so I simply painted over it. The interior is covered with sheet music. The contents include a variety of found objects, including a small porcelain doll and cropped vintage photos. The dimensions of this piece (which I photographed without the glass to eliminate glare) are approximately 8" X 10" X 4".
Below's a side-angle shot, which displays the depth of the piece. Also note the frame; I used pieces from an old, flea market frame and cut them to length for the box.
Here's a close-up shot. Lots of found objects in a small space.
