This is a fun piece I put together for an upcoming group show at The Gallery, Bainbridge Arts & Crafts Gallery on Bainbridge Island. The title of the show is E-I-E-I-HO-HO-HO! The theme is farm, such as in farm animals, buildings, equipment, etc. For this piece I decided to play with words. It is a wall mirror that sits away from the wall about an inch creating shadow behind it with my depiction of a ewe and when you look in the mirror you will appear with the ewe, hence the title...EWE & YOU.
Dimensions are 11.5H X 13W X 1.25D

This piece is that which I mentioned in my previous post where I hoped to find a photo showing similarity to the piece one of my art school instructors, Fred Griffin, created using old patinaed cedar shingles for a ground to create a work of art. I rather like the moss and lichen texture on the shingles in his piece (see below) which promote more interest, from my viewpoint. In my piece above I fashioned pine needles, some stiff and some lanky, tree bark for the wild burro, feathers and waxed string for the mane. This piece goes back to 1987... It was a commentary on the demise of the wild burro.
