Getting the Axe

Or being hatcheted. Take your pick!

This board will look different when you see it at the Patrick John Mills Gallery on Thursday if you come to the vernissage. At least, I hope it will.

I affixed the board to a square piece of chipboard I painted black. I wanted the axe to stand upright between the two pieces but knew that glue would not do the trick.

What I ended up using is black window caulking. I am hoping that it has solidified in the past couple of days since I left the boards at the gallery. It was very shaky the day I dropped it off. I had glued the handle to the board, the tip of the end, with hot glue but it had come loose by the time I got to the gallery.
