Fried On Current Issues And Topical Treatments

Back to the business at hand finally...
Began work again on my set of 10 Ham/Avacado paintings. Mounted the right painted/collaged portions to the base frames last night. This after I had painted them earlier with a mint green acrylic and then stained a truer green with a mixture of oil paint and a drying linseed oil.




I'm going to let the newly afixed portions set for a few days. Then, I'll add the over drawing outlines to each work and then it's off to the races. Need to find myself a nice spiral cut ham that isn't to large, but has thick enough slices that will serve my needs. Next, I'll need 10 ripe avacados so I can extract 1 large slice from the center of each and afix those to the base structure as well. Then the 10 pieces will be left outside in the sun & elements for a few weeks and I'll let nature take hold. Should be interesting.




Final steps include adding circuit boards, wires, lights and the growth vessels on the right side of the works.
