First House to Fly (pg. 87)...8x10 acyrlic on paper and panel...13 August 2010

A few years ago, I was at the library browsing through their used book bin and I found one called Sketchbook with Voices.  I am always working through a sketchbook, so I picked it up for a dollar.  This wasn’t your typical blank page sketchbook…it looked like a normal book with a cover art and the names of the authors who compiled the book.  Oh, and the book looked about 20 or 30 years old.  The Voices in this sketchbook where the words of many different comtemporary artists put into the pages to create a sort of assignment for that page.

My painting above is page 87 and the title First House to Fly is a scramble from the words of Alice Aycock:

…Make a sculpture that will enable you to fly.  Build a fragment that contains your memories of a first house…
