laziness, chip board, ephemera, etc.



More art submitted for the city gallery; the peach tree piece is already up, so they're turning stuff around pretty quick right now. I'll find out this week if these ones are going in the next show. Based on these pieces, the theme might have been "art in 60 seconds". Is it bad when the framing takes longer than the drawing? When your materials have so much acid in them, they'll crumble in a month? Heck no, I say! ha ha. Makes them more of the moment. As my dad has said, I'm here for a good time, not a long time. They're NFS, anyway. And as they fall apart, I'll just watch them turn into something new. :-)

By the way, did anyone read the recent quote from Phillipe Starck where he says he's basically lazy, and his favorite piece is always the next one? (I'd look it up, but uh, I'm kind of lazy too. Or busy? Or tired? They all blend together sometimes.) Anyway, not really related to this post, except for maybe the lazy part, but interesting!

Nice art pieces, Shannon! Regarding "lazy" issue, I've come to the term lately, finally, to be able to say, "Ahhh, I'm just so lazy!" for all kinds of stuff for which I didn't want to admit that I was lazy! :-P

Awesome 60 second art, Shannon!

I'm terribly lazy too. For example, I love doing laundry--washing and folding. I can be quite meticulous about it, actually. Yet the lazy part of me can't bother with putting it all "away".
