So much art, so little time...

Perhaps this time piece I created earlier this month at Jo's will help remind me to make more time for art. I'm so busy, art has taken a back seat recently to all my other priorities. Which is a shame, considering that art helps ground me and bring peace to my otherwise hectic life.



This clock is made out of a little tin lunch box -- about 4 inches by 3 inches. It was primed with Killz before I splotched on acrylic paints to give it an antiqued look. Others dabbed on alcohol inks, which I did use for the clock hands to dull some of the shininess.

The swirls and stuff are from a rubber stamp and some rub-ons. The BINGO card is a cut-out. The clock numbers are on little round pieces of wood, on which I stamped the numbers. Some artists used Scrabble tiles.
