Arts Insight TV, a Thursday night PBS series, was in my studio filming yesterday. My friend Fujio is a videographer with the show and he pitched me to the producers. They arrived at 1 and I learned that I should not have worn a Game of Thrones shirt that said Mother of Dragons. It seemed perfect given the fact that one of my latest series is called Dragonworks. But a trademark is not good for filming…guess I knew that…. but didn’t connect the dots. After the interview the producer Laura and I spent a lot of time talking about Game of Thrones ad Fujio filmed my studio, art and art car. It should air in Sept or October and it will go on You Tube after that.
I made my first art car, the Piecemobile in 2008. It was a tribute to my passion for quilting and sewing and was made from a 1999 Sebring convertible.
It was ruined in Hurricane Ike, along with most of the stuff in my studio, and the stuff in my husband’s man cave.
The second car was a collaboration between my husband and I. He came up with the idea of the Peace Expedition, using our 1996 Ford Expedition as the base.
The Peace Expedition
AlongCame Spider was next..a Fiat Spider was the base…it never ran worth a cr@p
