The Good News and the Bad News

The Good News:  I finished another collage yesterday.  This one is called Yellow Rabbit.  A couple days ago I realized that I tend to think more of boys things - fish, aliens, robots, dinosaurs.  It's what surrounds me here.  So I wanted to do something a little more girl-friendly.

The Bad News:  While looking for something yesterday - I knocked the glass for this piece and a slight wedge came off the side.  BAH!  So I can't use the glass.

The Good News:  When I bought the frame for this piece (and I pre-buy the frames and then make the piece to fit the sizes) I bought two.  So I have another piece of glass to use.

The Bad News:  But that means that another frame and mat will be wasted b/c I still only have one piece of glass.

The Good News:  I didn't really have an idea for a companion piece to this anyway.

So there you go.  Not a big loss, but a bummer none the less.  It's my own fault.  I put the glass on something unstable.  I just don't have a place to put glass right now!  I need a bigger studio.  Or - rather - I need to reorganize the one I have.

But for now this bunny will run solo.  We'll see if it sells.

Aww. That sucks about the glass. But, the collage is beautiful. I really like it!

Why don't you head on over to Metcalfe Glass (when they're back from vacation) and see if they have any scraps of glass that will work - or they can cut to fit?

I know what you mean about the whole gender thing. I always have pink on the brain.
