So earlier this year I spied a hand painted rock over at Jo Tito’s site. I thought it was really mesmerising and the colours were really choice too. So I asked Jo how much they were and she suggested we trade art.
I like trading art. Trading is good.
And finally, yes, FINALLY I finished a little something to trade in return.
So, because this site is all about (fist) pumping out the pictures, here’s some of the piece I made and Jo’s Perfect Rock.
They were taken with my phone, using my favourite gadget. The first one gives a reasonable shot of the shed and all the other things I got going on.
The small collage I made was done using an old frame, clothes dye and varnish. The collage itself was constructed from some red envelopes I picked up at Wah Lees while in Auckland last. And the background is filled with Aotearoa 666 stamps and a phrase in te reo Māori.
The last one shows my rock in my hot little hands. I love her! She’s sitting in an eastern pointing window sill, she can catch plenty of sun there in the mornings.
