As promised in the last post, I’m continuing with artwork created on old LP’s. Today’s piece began as all the others shown here, stacked and waiting for some creativity to find them. It is actually the one on the top of the pile, that’s been spray painted with hammered metal color paint.
Different from the last post, there are no magazine pages. Instead, I began by outlining the record onto a piece of watercolor paper and drawing a mandala with that circle. On one side was the drawing, on the other side I had fun with some abstract painting of watercolors.
Once the paint was dry I began the tedious task of cutting out tiny areas of the mandala so that, once attached, the record would show through. Yes, these images show some pink & brown instead. That’s my pretty cutting board and my work table. 🙂
After all the cutting was done the paper was attached to the record and extra drawing, ink and glass pieces were added to it for some dimension.
The final step creating “Circadian” was to add the mechanism and hands to transform it into a work clock. Viola!
Hmmmm. I wonder what the next piece will look like? You’ll find out in a few days!
