This is something that started during the cleansing and organizing effort a few months ago. I found some pictures I took back when I lived in Milwaukee and worked at the grocery store. I had had them mounted with the intention of sending them to Royal Graphix in La Crosse to have half-tone engravings made, for the purpose of printing them to sell as postcards at the grocery store. That never happened. And I couldn’t just throw them away. So I showed them to my wife, stumped, and asked, “What would you do with these?” And she looks at me like I’m some kind of moron and goes, “Look at them?”

I was blown away as I retreated back downstairs to the workshop, where I decided to at least preserve them in some sort of creative way…this being a prime opportunity to embark on the new mission determined during the winter cleanse:

After years of accumulation, the goal from this point forward ought to be sorting, and organizing, and using it all up. All of it!*

On your mark, get set, go. Here’s the inside, backside, and a detail view of this work in progress:

* …Given the amount of time available and the amount of stuff to use up, this is quite a challenge, mind you. I mean, I don’t have a LOT of stuff…like some people have a LOT a LOT of stuff. I have enough, that’s for sure. It’s coming down to get rid of it or use it, or do both, and call it art.
