Balloon Glow with Giraffe and Elephant (Not a Title)

Renée Decator invited me to participate in a group multimedia themed exhibit. Each of us were assigned a mystery box of fabric, paper, string, and a substrate. We were allowed to create anything, wall hanging or sculpture, with the only restriction being that we could not hide the origin of our media. The whole point of the exercise was to help us stretch outside of our normal comfort zone.

Even though my work wasn’t as experimental as it should have been, it definitely helped clear the cobwebs. Since then, I’ve been juggling a few ideas for my paintings, but this one is about the only one worth posting. Please pardon the scribbled lines…Wacom woes, a byproduct of Wacom abuse, poor delicate thing. Brief vent, by the way: Wacom hasn’t been the same since they abandoned the standard hard surface in lieu of an all but useless bit of plastic stuck in place by the barest bit of adhesive. Had my first Wacom plugged into a USB vice serial port, I would still be using it. Five tablets later…oh well.

Yes, the hot air balloon trend had run it’s course through poster images, sculptural knickknacks, and lamps alike. But still, there’s something timeless about the subject for me. And there’s always the hilarious impossibility of two large animals (one a continuation of my Giraffe universe) trying to cram themselves into an unbelievably tiny vehicle.

There is a savor of life and immortality in the substantial fare. Like balloons, we are nothing till filled
