Keeping promises

Once I finished up the washboard-mounted altered book series, I cleaned up the studio a little and realized... oh yeah... I promised a piece of art to someone.

Volunteers from Preston Kuppe Guild gave me that intriguing cigar box, back at the Fall Best of the Northwest art festival last year.

The guild raises money for Seattle Children's Hospital during their "Art a la Carte" auction. They've asked me and other festival artists to turn the boxes into artworks to be sold at the event. The rocky exterior texture is giving me some ideas...

... but I have to make it all happen in the next few days. Preferably over the weekend. Hoo boy... send me some encouragement to keep me going, won't you?
