Mind's eye, mind's voice

"Untitled WIP"

It's been some time since I've written about keys and their symbolism. Just when I think I've let go, moved on, or forgotten about them-them and all of the deep-rooted feelings of which they are symbolic- they resurface; just as lost keys often do.

I'm finding my way again, in ways I'll write more about as they become clearer-both perceptively and in reality. Until that time, here is what has become of one of the sweet little doll arms from my last vintage score. It's now brass-capped, "Tameka brown" (acrylic paints and satin Krylon finish) and in the company of a 1.5 cm key, bronze lucite bead-of which I'm still uncertain; a large flattened brass oval, and a scrap of worn, whitewashed wood, patterned paper. Say that three times fast. I'd say I'm almost 100% certain where I'm headed with this, so stay tuned.

Peace and creative expression

Looking good! I can dig the keys. I think I'm doing my own little dance around keys these days, or perhaps they are doing a dance around me. Looking forward to see how this piece progresses =)
