ALTERED PRINTERS TRAY

Quietly, quietly in the background, while I have been playing at poetry, I have been beavering away at altering this Printer Tray. It measures 11.5 x 19 inches and is the largest art I've ever tackled. I started with great enthusiasm, then got stuck for a while, but kept at it. Kept filling the waste paper basket with disasters until the thrill of making it grabbed me all over again and then, suddenly, every aperture was filled and I could stop holding my breath, hoping it would all come together ... done.... Next!

  56. This is gorgeous artwork! Everything meshes, and the little wheels (gears?) give a 3-D effect, a bit of whimsy and asymmetry. Loved it, thanks, Penny! Amy
