The Surprise = 3

1. It took over.

20 x 27 cm
Found black and white photo, (erased) graphite, dark grey and black thread, felt

2. She couldn't make it.

19 x 23.5 cm
Found black and white photo, watercolors, found (photo album) vellum, graphite.
Please note = Her head is cut out of the paper.

3. On holiday with strings attached.

13 x 24 cm
Found color photograph, graphite, acrylic, page out of a book on geography
Please note = If you were wondering - yes - this piece is crooked.
Also, as a small detail, the space between her thumb and her pointing finger is cut out.


3 might be my favorite number - but I wouldn't want to commit to that because there are so many other numbers out there.
I mean - 5 is not that bad either....
Maybe my affinity for 3 comes from my mom who says that things happen in 3's
both good and bad.

Then there is the aesthetic appreciation I have for the number.
It looks good.
The evolution of 3 could look like this:

Then there is my cousin who has 3 letters in her first name AND 3 letters in her last name.
(That is not why I like the number 3 but that idea that she has 3 and then 3 always sticks in my head).
Well, in honor of the holidays, I decided to make 3 works available today.


If you are interested in one of these works - please indicate the number.

Finally please note - I might not get back to you until tomorrow evening (San Francisco time) - so please be patient.
