Jeanie at 17

The final touch... A vintage ruler ....17

Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair

My latest assemblage features a photograph of my mother at 17 with her first love. She married him at 16 and suffered her first heartbreak as they divorced 2 years later. The antique pin, which was my mother's, on the hand, symbolizes hearts entwined in the hand of marriage. The vintage song sheet entitled Heartache represents the songs she played on the piano in the 30's and 40's, and the heartbreak she would suffer. She was blissful in this photo at 17.

Rustarado

My favorite and the highlight of the show for me, being a rustoholic Found Object artist was a custom built vintage truck, rusted throughout, welded hammered brass with copper riveting. The fenders were covered with hand sewn leather and gut.
The stick shift was an 8 cue ball atop a giant drill bit. The gas pedal was a wrench, and the truck was equipped with a saddle bag and beer opener on the side. Craig Dolan was the owner and designer. Pure Artistry!

Art Cars

The Good Guys Northeast National Car Show rolled into West Springfield this weekend on the Exposition grounds and what a sight to see! 2500 hot rods, custom built, and vintage classic cars were among the eye candy. Here are some of my favorite "Art Cars".
