Bon Voyage reflects my love of travel. The folk painting inside the double "compartments" is holding on to a couple of birds, signifying love for home, while the oversized hand and arm are literally bursting outside the compartment, eager to be on the way. I fashioned this piece from two decorative boxes, the folk painting, an arm from a child-size manekin, a second piece of folk art, a decorative embellishment and a parrot feather. I had two pillowcases full of parrot feathers before Katina, and hated losing those much more than losing the couch or that brand new stovetop.
