Steampunk Scenario 1
I'm working on a commission for a steampunk piece that will include a clock. The finished work will be 1 ft x 4 ft. This is the top square foot of the piece, and the clock is in the next section down. I'm having a blast working on this as it evolves and becomes whatever it wants to - very liberating for an artist! I'm getting to paint, construct boxes and frames, use vintage doodads, sculpt with clay, collage, add mosaics, etc. The color palate includes rust (of course), metals, golds, greens, and blues. After recovering from shoulder surgery, I'm finally getting my art rhythm and mojo back. Thank goodness.
