I had an interesting looking piece of wire hanging in the Perch (what I call the studio) for several years. When I finally decided to do something with it, I took a photo of it and transferred that image to this 6x8 canvas. I floated the wire above the photo so that they matched up. It lacked dynamics. So I added dozens of small, flat brass beads. Better, but still...meh. So I seized a flexible fresnel lens and fastened it to the piece to give a surreal, hard-to-look-at quality and, by golly, it was done.
