in gold. Is it finished? I'm not sure. I sat in a daze, glaring at myself for nearly an hour. I'm sure there is something left to be done but does it NEED it? I think the problem is attempting to please an audience. Yesterday I actually thought, 'Will people look at this and see that it's only 5 hours of work?" "Should I put more time in?"

Art shouldn't be about selling something. It shouldn't be about an investment. It just needs to be genuine and sure. It's tough because so many of my pieces are 'self portraits' whether they are figurative or not, they are all heavily based on my thoughts and reactions to my environment. In turn, when I look at my work, especially ones involving my face, I become self conscious. I want to add more, perhaps a distraction, coping mechanism. Not sure. Anyway, here's the big 'n. It consist of fabric, a GIANT image transfer and some gold leaf. It's about religion. Nothing out of the ordinary for me. I have to admit, that's tea in that mug..."revelations." Get it? That's as far as I'm going to lead you. If you want to hear more, you know my number. Cheers!
