New Again!

So Rhonda & John originally planned to visit the Great Wall of China around the same time as 9/11. The tragedy kept them home, but they did take that trip in November, 2010. I received a photo of them at the Great Wall. That calls for a painting don't you think? This is a transfer painting combining elements of the original photograph with collage, all mounted on canvas. The piece is 12 inches x 12 inches.
I saw the film "How to Draw a Bunny"! Am I the only person who has never heard of Ray Johnson? Oh man! His work grabbed me by the throat & choked me up! I LOVE it. And then I felt that sort of creepy feeling of "desire of ownership". I want a piece to call my own to look at whenever I want to. I have requested the book through my library's Interlibrary Loan service. I can't wait!
