The Earth Reliant Artist

I had a great deal of fun making these pieces of art paper.
Layers of wax, ink and paint on hand made paper.
And now they are in my Etsy shop because I must be ruthless with myself.
It becomes harder and harder to figure out what to make the closer the deadline of moving day looms.
I can only fit the minimum in the car and postage will be confined to the lightest of things.
And what do I do with stuff that doesnt sell?
Well I suppose I will have to have a big sale.
First on Etsy
Then in the studio
and last
but not least
at my market stall
the day we leave!!
Now how crazy is that?

or you could have a conflagration and photo-document the British chap who became the darling of the art whirled some 20 years ago by destroying ALL of his possessions including his car and passport

or a more eco-friendly solution might be to create an outdoor installation that becomes quietly absorbed into the landscape. photographs mandatory of course.

my studio needs a serious purge. maybe i should be out there wrapping the rocks in ecoprint cloth :)
