This is a very rude piece. I was feeling angry and rude the day I did it. I don’t feel that way often at all.
Someone felt the need to say that their alcoholism and addiction to prescription drugs was my doing. I actually manipulated them into addiction. How the hell do you manipulate someone into doing what they wanted to do? In fact it’s the reason we’re not together now. Now the really amusing part of this is that I’m known as a coffee freak and I have to have a pretty bad headache to even start considering taking an aspirin. But I was really hacked off just the same and since I’d rather have surgery without anesthesia than have a conversation with this person – I captured that anger on a vintage tin photo mounted on vintage book papers from a 1950’s sex guide (a really short book! seriously it’s like 50 pages) and mounted it on a 3×5 canvas.
