More Papers from the Past

These papers are from around 1977. They were to be part of an exhibit to take place in a store front window. I think my idea was that they could be seen 24 hours a day.

John Searcy had a shoe repair shop in downtown Cincinnati. John was always a guitarist singer and songwriter extraordinaire. He just happened to be able to repair shoes too. The shop window was at his place on 8th Street.

All of the paintings were to have the shape of a guitar pick in them. The papers were all to be 8 1/2 X 11 and the frames were to be sheet protectors. I think the hanging apparatus was to be tape. I don't think they resemble any of J's early works.

Like many light hearted ideas the start is easy the finish is hard.
