My final piece for the show was this: Mask to Wear During A Full Moon: the Moon's silver-blue face against an indigo back drop, surrounded by appendages illustrating the moon's cycle. The piece is 38 inches tall by 17 inches wide. I worked until the wee hours, as the other artists and I had agreed to meet and hang the show at 8:30 Friday morning. Fittingly, my blood was spilled when I snipped my left middle finger with my mother's old - and very sharp - black-handled steel Wiss scissors. A quick patch with a butterfly bandage only set my work back 5 minutes or so.
The work is hung, the opening was well attended, and now I am on to my next projects. An endless cycle - like the Moon.
