Goal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days
It is not very often that I get mad. I think most would even call me a laid back gal. There are exceptions to this, of course; such as with folks who are repeatedly rude, my interactions with computers that refuse to cooperate, and, it turns out, my dealings with a health insurance company who is raising my rates…again.
Yesterday, after frustrating conversations with United Health and lengthy searches on the internet, I was mad. Lucky for me, the incident proved good fodder for day 44’s project. I quickly began to carve out an elephant with stick legs. The skinny structures seem useless other than as a means to prop the poor thing up. I have a myriad of ideas as to what I was trying to express while creating this piece, but I am more entertained by the boyfriend’s thoughts: “It looks like the elephant’s legs got run over by a lawnmower.” Sadly, he couldn’t afford the health insurance to fix them.
