Sky Is Falling
12" x 9"
oil on panel
While at one of my favorite flea markets, I came across this little chick sitting by himself on top of a glass case. I scooped him up and bought him. He looked as if he had a tough life, I am sure at times feeling like the sky was falling. To me this image speaks a lot about many things going on in the world,and how we may feel as a result.
This tin windup toy was made 1950's or earlier, made in Japan, hand-painted. When wound up he pecks at the ground.
The acorn is from a bowl of acorns I gathered with my daughter when she was 4 years old.

Growing up watching The Jetsons I would dream about their hovering space cars. I still wonder if someday that dream will come true in my lifetime.
The cars in Hover are from the 1930's, made of bakelite.
