usa ram van

At least a good eight months ago a pinky-swear was made that I would be responsible for putting an American flag on the hood of a baby blue Ford Ranger pick-up truck and the other pinky involved in the deal would be responsible for putting a couch in the back of said pick-up truck and bringing me and others to a drive-in move theater.  Both of these promises were to be accomplished by the end of the summer. The pinky swear fell through and the truck croaked, but I finally sort of did my side of the deal by making a stencil for the back of the Ram Van Ranger-replacement.  Unfortunately all drive-in movie theaters close in September and aren't open again until April so it looks like the other party/pinky is going to have to live in misery until spring and the other half of the deal actually happens.

wrist deep!

In December I submitted this to the annual juried auction at Mass Art and it got accepted.  The starting price is going to be $1,200.  It was the only piece I had at the time that wasn't massive.  I get 50% of what it sells for, and the other half goes to the school.  This puppy won got a Best in Show award in the All School Show last year and is really popular with moms.  It took me probably three straight months to make.

These are long exposures - there were red, green, and blue lights inside of the tree hooked up to a sound organ so when there was noise certain colors would flash. All three colors make white when combined so the light just looks white in the pictures.
