This is what you get when I buy a six pack of Guinness and 4 bottles of Segrams. No, not a trip to the ER to get my stomach pumped, you get a lot of jars full of alcohol and new coffee table.
This is how I have spent my past few weeks.
"The Piano Has Been Drinking"
by Mike Oncley
Based on the song and the lyric by Tom Waits, made with broken stout, gin and vodka bottles on painted wood(spray/acrylic). Glasswork is built into a wooden table I also constructed and covered by a sheet of glass. The table top is roughly 32"x26".
What does a dancing purple dinosaur have in common with a Golden Globe smashing TV show? The cast.
Barney tried to be as politically correct as possible by having wheelchair kid and hearing aid girl join in with the singing and dancing in the tree house and on the playground. Today those kids have grown up and are singing in high school. On Glee they have the wheelchair kid and the flamboyantly gay kid singing for their peers along with mr. misfit and the token fat black girl. Although Glee's formula is more of a "the unpopular kids are cool too" mixture where Barney's was a bit more "everybody's different" since popularity wasn't on every 5 year olds mind. The way it panned out with ages, the kids watching Barney are probably watching Glee now. Timing is everything.
As I pospone doing laundry and testing out possible new beds for myself I have become fixated on a new website/movement. It's called 365 and its whole concept is to encourage an artist to make a new piece of artwork everyday for an entire year while keeping a certain theme. Founder of 365, Noah Scalin, made a skull a day for one year.
It's a pretty unique concept and it is only truly finished after a year has gone by. Im not one to start one of these since who knows if I'd ever actually finish it, I can hardly finish one art project let alone three hundred and sixty five small ones(it seems more epic when I write the number out).
Anyways, it's a cool idea and a lot of neat art pieces, long term and temporary, have come out of it so be sure to check it out.
