yep, another clock. this one is #86. fourteen more and i'm done with the series. i thought i might whip through these but now i'm not so sure. I don't multi task well, when i'm working on one project its difficult for me to trot over to another one and pick up where i left off.
the puzzle project is laborious, so far i'm on month four of it and i think it will be 3 or 4 more months before i'm done. i do hope i'm able to find a way to feel motivated to do something else too.
take this clock. last week i had all these tiles glued onto it and spent 4 days trying to get the fricking hands to 'go with it'. no color worked. what i did was instead put a little cloth over all 34 tiles and beat the living shit out of them with a hammer. a day later i then scraped them all off and cleaned up the plate. i kept the color that i had painted (adding to it just a little) on the top and bottom and finally found some metal to cut up and fit in the center. the hands are a bit greyer and lighter in shade....for the life of me i can never get good photos of my artwork. after 3 hours of dicking around with picture taking and editing i give up. this piece reminds me of an abandoned car out in the desert. i think it is quite attractive in real life. you'll just have to buy it to see for yourself.
