Hanging by a Thread

It looks like it floats, but it actually is hanging with fishing line.  I thank my friend Kathy Lichtendahl for photographing this piece.  I have entered it in a juried show, Abstracting the West.  If juried in, it will hang in the Wyoming Territorial Prison in Laramie Wyoming  pretty much all summer.  The only prison to have actually held Billy the Kid.  
 I should know this week if it is juried into this show.  
In making this piece I used many of my Dad's hat pins a few coins and other items he had in his nightstand.  The maps I cut up were also found at his home.   So,  although I have put a price on it, it is a hefty price, because I really do not want to sell it.  But if I do and get what I ask,  I think I can sell it without guilt.  
 I actually have another piece I have entered,  I will feature it next week.  So,  check back.
