Axe or Ax. I prefer the word with three letters even though it is probably wrong. Getting the Axe, it seems more Medieval.
If you saw this up close, you'd note axe marks in the surrounding wooden frame. When one starts to go wild, it just doesn't stop at keyboards. Of course, someone else inflicted these wounds since keyboards are the only thing I am defacing at present.
The Woe No Mo' board is my signature piece as an anti-war, social justice peace activist. And this board holds a special place in the Quirky B. pantheon as it is the board that Patrick John Mills saw at his Hintonburg outside show over two years ago and he immediately said, "I want that board a year from now in my WAR show in September."
Impatient, I popped by the January vernissage and asked if I might display some Quirky B's before September and with February's Love Art Show a month away, Patrick asked if I had any art that would be suitable. Of course I did. If the show had been called Measles and Winter Flu, I would have had suitable art.
Just goes to show that you have to recognize luck and be open to it when it beams your way.
