Scrolls - one thing I know about them is that they are long. They are usually painted one side only (as in 'Just Passing Through') but i got carried away and painted The 'i' Scroll both sides. How in the name of... are they going to frame that. Glass both sides and hanging from the ceiling by wires. i suppose the idea is that you walk around them either deosil or widdershins, depending on the hemisphere you are in - right or left, north or south?
The boxes are another story. 'Just passing Through' is an extended comment - only painted one side - on modern quantum reality. Sort of a level up from Hawking, Copenhagians, Bohr and Clauser. Jasper Memory's poem sums it all up - see it in this gallery.
The 'Wine Box' is a little more local - it is a five-sided and two-flapped statement on the process of my ongoing recovery from alcohol addiction. Because it is THE 'Wine Box' it deserved artistic treatment.
This gallery building is new to me - but even those who paint traditionally need to embrace the digital wizardry of 'dgrin' and 'SmugMug', and their mates - Picasa 3, Google, Yahoo and Mozilla Firefox.

At the end of the gallery is my poor attempt at descriptive video, not on show at this point - i will edit it later
