New Heights

New Heights
24" x 12"
oil on panel

Setting goals. Going new places. 
Learning new skills. Being brave. Taking a first step.
Take a breath.
Reaching for new heights.

All these phrases inspired my new painting
New Heights.

detail from painting

The vintage wind up mechanical rabbit
 in this painting is Skippy The Jumping Rabbit
made by Mikuni in Japan
between 1950-1960.

The cloth dressmakers measuring tape is from the 1950's. 
The case is made from bakelite. Bakelite is one of the first 
plastics made from synthetic components.
