TV LAND

Photobucket


This is a 16x20 abstract inspired by the idea of television. do you remember th days when you had to turn on the set before your show started to 'warm it up'? In fact do you remember the days when you turned the tv on and after your show you turned it off? Back when the television wasn't left on 24/7. Back in the day when you had to get up to turn the channel and when the knob broke you had a pliers ready to turn the dial. Back when  there were rabbit ears that often had to have additional tin foil flaps wrapped around them. Sometimes you had to stand and hold the antenna in order to get a reception. And the tv was encased in a huge wooden console. Remember?

You captured that early TV routine to a T and I remember those days all too well.

Oh boy, do I remember, right down to the pliers. Those were the days when my dad had to replace tubes in the tv when there were problems with it too. Love the colors in this piece; definitely reminds me of those old sets.
