This series is unframed and tacked to the wall. I would prefer to have them hanging from a laundry line, but hey you've got to work with what you've got. My WORK... completely vulnerable to curious little fingers and uncovered sneezes. The other artists think I am quite insane for installing them this way as I labored many hours to create these original pieces. You see, if anyone touches them they will be smeared and altered and some say ruined. Bah! So I put up a sign that says: "IF YOU SMEAR YOU BUY" written on the same material as the paintings. Then I took my pointer finger and touched my sign. Then I left my pastel finger trail (hey that sorta rhymes?) right there on the wall. I figure it is a demonstration of what happens to the paintings when you let your fingers walk on them. It may or may not deter people, but that is a chance I am willing to take.
