Out Of Sight But Not Out Of Mind

Posted by Sermarr

This piece got its top glued and screwed down today. It is so suggestive of how we live our lives with all these past things never quite tucked away completely. And our worries are just hovering in the back of our minds ready to pounce. This piece with all the activity and the links (those are the cords and wires) partially displayed and hidden under the covering top tries to display this state of living we all do

“Out Of Sight But Not Out Of Mind”

Posted by Sermarr

Today Out Of Sight advanced some but it was hard to work on. Too many old nagging memories of things I left undone came up as I worked on it. Had to stop early. Here's the corner I worked on

“Out Of Sight”. Best friends

Posted by Sermarr

This detail is about two best friends of mine and how we keep refreshing our friendship by being with one another. Sometimes we get together for holidays and sometimes take trips since we don't live in the same city. And this is like a rosary of memories of those times, binding us together

Out of sight moves rapidly

Posted by Sermarr

Today I've spent as much time as I could on "Out Of Sight". It is so great to be able to depict old memories, difficult situations, happy memories in this piece. Love, breakups, long forgotten awards... They're all in this piece. I may use some photographs. And each memory is a little grayed over and softened by time. And the connections are represented by cord and wire.

“Out Of Sight”

Posted by Sermarr

This is a piece with a cover and the painted figures peeking out from behind the cover. It's called "Out Of Sight" and could be subtitled "But Not Out Of Mind". And maybe the two will go together when it's finished if that title fits. Here are the two pieces together and then lines being drawn under the "cover" so that I can tell where to paint the pieces so they will peek out and then the cover lifted off
