An Award

My thanks to Sweet Irene of Sweet Wood Talking for this lovely award :)
Much appreciated! If you haven't been over there lately your missing out in some great mandala's and some interesting collaborative pieces!
I have been interested in the response to my query below and to the artwork. I am also very interested in interactive art, where the buyer decides the ultimate combination of art with the way it is arranged by them reflecting them, their stories and reactions to the art. Richard Killeen is a well known NZ artist who has done this (particularly in his early years) and as I soon I heard about that style I thought it was fabulous.
My intention with this series would be for the owner would decide on the placement of each piece (if they were for sale.) In my opinion it adds another dimension to the work and isn't an a lack of sureness on my part, rather an act of letting go and letting the art take the next part of it's journey. These are destined to belong to me, probably in the back of a A3 visual diary to inspire me later on...I have flattened them under a big pile of National Geographic magazines and will mount each part onto thick card. Perhaps sandwiched between 2 sheets of glass as Sweet Irene suggested. Thanks to those of you who commented, it is most appreciated!
Have a fantastically awesome day!
PS: Spell check seems to be working again! Wahoo!

OK - cool to let go and make the owner a player....understood.

I am more uptight - I make them buy sofas to match color of my paintings. Make them change wallpaper color and discard pets.

I always thought of you as a southern hemisphere blogger.

Sounds like a cool idea to me! Lucky you on the spell check. I've given up on it ever working for me. Ah...the joys of a bilingual household, our computer is set in French. For English I have to switch the keyboard setting, but note...the keyboard is still a French keyboard and the keys are not the same...phffff. Oh and btw, in my last comment to you? I do know how to spell SEPARATELY :-).
