Some weeks ago I went to a garage sale. I didn’t really find anything I urgently needed or wanted until in the last corner of the garage I saw an old frame from art nouveau time (around 1900). I was a bit “shocked” because there was a photo of Frank Zappa in it. It was a little collision of two things that didn’t really fit together. But I must admit that I was a big fan of Frank Zappa when I was younger and so I had a friendly and competent conversation with another Frank Zappa fan. He actually didn’t intend to sell the frame but somehow he felt a little sympathy for me and sold it to me for 5 Euros. I was very happy because it is quite cheap for such a wonderful old frame and I collect frames (I have 200 old frames in my flat). I repaired it a bit by myself. The frame only had one disadvantage: it had a very extraordinary size. I have a few old copper engravings but none of them fit into that frame. So I had to draw something myself. I was thinking a few sleepless nights about the object. Finally I took a feather from a wild turkey that I found some time ago, because it is oblong, too. Then I took out some brown paper in order to have a little shabby old look, my colored pencils as well as some white and black acrylic colors. You can see the steps of my work up to the passe-partout and the montage into the frame. I think this was a good solution. What do you think?
