Working an average of 8 hours a day for 11 weeks in 2015, the home was finished for exhibition at March Art Madness on the eve of the March 25th drop-off day. I estimate that I have spent over 2000 hours working on it since 1980. The home is conservatively valued at $8000 based on some items I saw on the web.
The Sawnee Artists Association "March Art Madness" show had mostly all paintings, photography, ceramics and jewelry. I surprised everybody the day I dropped off the Mystery Thing. All they knew was that I was bringing a LARGE 3-D item. I usually submit watercolor paintings at shows.
There was only 1 award given (but alas no prize money) for this show. I WON!!! All Glory is Mine!!
I felt a total let-down after working so hard for 3 months. This will probably be my last project of this magnitude. Back to painting, I think.
Thanks for viewing my gallery!
