Some Will Remember 'Five O'clock Somewhere'
Some of you may remember how ill-received my gift to my sister was when she sent me the shards of a broken plate, and how excited I was to make something that I THOUGHT she would be thrilled to get. Ha! Those were the days when I was so excited about learning this art that I thought EVERYONE w/LOVE my work. N.O.T.!!! She told me while visiting last month that she thought it was the ugliest thing she had ever seen. I have been asking for it back ever since she told me she didn't know what to do with it when she received it. FINALLY my lovely piece of wacky art is back home where it's appreciated. Received it via UPS last night. Talk about glad to receive an insult. Yeah, the beads are a gaudy touch, but I even buy my clothes at a botuque named "Dressin' Gaudy". Oh, BTW - the knothole on her left side is my rendition of a tattoo. I mosaiced around it. The name of the piece was because years ago when she was visiting me, I deigned to have a drink b/f five. Told her it was five somewhere in the world. The watch face on her right shoulder is set for 5:00.
