Help in the Art Lair

It IS true- good help is hard to find.

I entered the Art Lair this afternoon, all ready to start making a new shadowbox.

The above photo shows you what- who- I found on my desk.

And not far away, laying on the carpet, I found the shattered remains of the teacup that I had planned to use in a new piece entitled "Victory".

As an artist, I spend a lot of time 'percolating'. I assemble cool found object bits (like cool black teacups with swirls on the front), go away for awhile (sometimes weeks) and then come back with a plan.

Thanks to my furry assistant, Angus, I am now moving on to Plan B.

Which may take a few more weeks because I wasn't expecting "help".
