When completed, this project will be a two-part installation. I started with two monotype watercolor pieces of Red Cross beds
the monotypes all together to date. Sadly I did not have a press over the summer.
Now it is time to focus on the 3D cot. The cot is both a pedestal for a wire dog sleeping on the cot waiting for his owner and a historical reference to the bare bones of humanity realized at the GRB during Hurricane Harvey.
In order to make the indention of the dogs body where he dog will lay I have layed bags of mulch in the shape of a dogs body and have piled bricks on top to weigh it down. Then I have sanding and painting to do, a concrete or plaster pillow to make and then I have to figure out the blanket. Lastly I have to make the wire dog. And more hero pieces. I like to have more than enough so I can edit it down to my favorites when I exhibit it.
