As written in my last entry, I am working on a large piece. There are three reasons why: first, after doing a bunch of smaller pieces, the challenge of working on a large piece sounded like a good way to shake things up; second, in exploring the edges of my abilities, I learn what I like to do with these Foundlings.

Large works, just by their size have significance but can appear like furniture. These large pieces need a subtler aesthetic; and lastly; as a kind of strategy,
I will have a fourth, outside wall on my booth at Art Expo Solo in April. It is my hope that having a large work on the outside wall will stand out in a very crowded event. That's the plan anyway.
