Triple Good Giveaway's time once again for a giveaway.

This small assemblage piece resides in one of my constructed boxes and it measures 12" x 7" x 1 3/4". It has a value of $250. The title is Menage A Trois and it was completed in 2007. If you visit my web site you can go to the "Pat's Studio" section of the site and click on "How It Happens" to see all the steps involved in constructing and finishing these boxes I put together for a lot of my assemblage. This particular little box is constructed of 26 individual pieces of cut wood and molding pieces. The finishing involves four steps. 1) A base coat of acrylic gel medium mixed with molding paste and a bit of sawdust 2) Two coats of acrylic paint 3) an acrylic glaze 4) a coat of brown furniture wax. I take all this time to produce a box for my work that has an aged look that corresponds with the age of the objects I am using. For this little piece I used a trio of vintage metal railroad model figures sitting on a tiny metal bench and a vintage wooden block. In this piece I was playing with the current media tendency to ascribe a salacious quality to the most mundane and innocent of circumstances.

So....if ya wanna have this piece here's what ya gotta do. On my blog sign up as a follower AND leave me a comment including your email address so that I can notify the winner. Be sure to leave your email in code. As an example: Gilda (at) gmail (dot) com

You have until Feb. 28 to enter this giveaway and I will post the winner on March 1.

Mucho luck!
