During the month of June, Graffiti Gallery held it's second "Junk Art Show." This little fellow (although I think that is a skirt ) was created by Don Jones from Pittsburgh. This is Don's second year exhibiting in Oil City and he does some wonderful whimsical sculptures.
I am the proud owner of this mini-bot (it was in my price range.) At first I thought of a mother who is tapping her foot with her hands on her hips, giving her child that "you are in trouble look." Not that I ever saw that look....... really!
But today as I was standing and thinking about a work that I was hanging on the wall, I found my self in the same pose. (Only I wasn't tapping my foot.) My head was cocked and my hands were on my hip. No longer was he the disapproving mother but the artist contemplating his work. (I actually think I take that pose a lot!)
So...... instead of going home with me as planned. The mini-bot is staying in my studio as a reminder that I need to buckle down and get to work. Yes, mother!
