Love is... when your husband takes your art out of the trash - puts it together and hangs it in the
If you have been with me for awhile you will remember that in June of 2011 my husband and I participated in Scrapfest lead by one of our artist friends. It is an annual event where you run through a scrapyard pick your scraps and create a sculpture. We were part of a team of 5 and it was an incredible experience. While we were working like madmen in our garage after work every night (we had 2 weeks to complete the task) we generated a lot of onlookers. I had made a poster for the end of the driveway signifying what we were doing! Throughout the process I took a lot of pics and we had pieces of metal leftover from cut outs that I used for some of the pics!
When the event ended, my husband and were left with the chaos and some of it I just couldn't toss out. ( I do have a problem with that ) My plan was to have Mark (the said my husband) rivet the poster to one of the metal cut outs to be hung in the garage in remembrance of the experience. Somehow, more than a year has gone by and the pieces were still sitting on the landing in the garage. So, a week ago, he asks me what am I doing with this stuff? Hummmm, well, I thought the plan was blah blah blah but I guess not. He went back into the house and I stood there staring at my kooky treasures. I picked it up and took it to the dumpster. I didn't say a word. I figured he wouldn't even notice. I knew he would notice it was gone but assumed he would think I put in the basement or somewhere in my room of art chaos!
Trash day had come and gone - I didn't think another thing of it! Yesterday I come home from work and hanging on our living room wall is my trash! You have got to love a guy that understands the depths of your soul!!!! I never saw it removed from the garbage... or him working to put it together! XXOO!!!
Thanks to Alexandra for hosting Sunday Sketches!!!!! Can't wait to see all the art!
