Here is "Can I Take My Gun Up To Heaven":
I used a transparency of one of my antique cabinet cards, sticker letters I embellished with rub and buff and China Markers and Stabilo pencils, turquoise Golden Acrylic, red crackle paint, plastic dollar store sheriff's badge I aged with paint and Golden's Gel Bead medium, alcohol ink blood on the bullet casings, rusty wings left over from a workshop, Tim Holz Grunge Board wings, portfolio oil pastels and the guns are my secret. hahahohohehe.
The song that inspires the Art is by the band Cracker. The song is, not suprisingly, "Can I Take My Gun Up To Heaven".
I saw a concert years ago with The Gin Blossoms (not a fan), The Spin Doctors, who were HORRIBLE and the lead singer was an egotistical a-hole, yelling at the audience because there was a lot of milling around for drinks, bathroom breaks etc, cuz they sucked so bad live. Cracker was the opening act and the point of my being there. Unfortunately their bus broke down, they arrived late and they only played 3 songs becuz the Spin Doctors didn't want to go on stage late. Weenies. Anyhoo, years and years ago I discovered Cracker on the station I used to listen to, WXPN, commercial free radio from the University of Pennsylvania. This was before my XM subscription and Pandora radio on the internet. I recommend these stations highly.Anyhoo, this piece has been in my head for years and it finally came out. xoSusan
