sfmoma artist gallery sale + "world of wonders"

it's that time again....
the annual sfmoma artist gallery warehouse sale.
it's a big fundraiser for the gallery, with work from 50% to %75 percent off regular prices-
I'll have several pieces there, including this piece, "bridesmaid waiting" (hope).

bridesmaid, waiting (hope)
acrylic on panel
76" x 49"

world of wonders (milagro) - 
mixed media collage on paper

here is one I made the night before I took the work over to the gallery - I like to stay up (almost) all night, sitting on the floor in a sea of pieces of paper and little bits of history.  I was smitten by this little bit of paper that from a tattered copy of "The Gentlemen's Magazine and Historical Chronicle, 1833".  I'm having a difficult time coming up with a visual image on what the belated counselor was actually doing.....I tore through boxes of snippets, trying to find the rest of the page, but no luck.

I couldn't figure out which way I liked the piece best, so I signed and titled it on all four sides,
who ever purchases it can spin it around at whim.
