I've been thinking for quite a while about using recycled popsicle sticks in my art. Today, I carried some down to the studio and decided to go for it. The first thing at hand was a Smithsonian magazine which had some interesting images - so I looked for things that would fit on the sticks and still leave some exposed. This is Caravaggio's David with the head of Goliath. The map was in the same article, as was the text used. I found this was very labor intensive, and it took a lot more time than I usually give a project - but as I had never seen this done before, I thought I'd give it my all. Here is my new creation.
