SOLD - Swimming In A Sea of Spam

- by Shawn Marie Hardy

This week's theme: Spam And Trout

Fun and silliness among EBSQ members spawned an inside joke that has become a bi-annual show. The first "Spam And Trout Show" appeared in the fall of 2004. It is now the fall of 2008 and once again EBSQ brings you the "Spam and Trout Show". To honor the history of this unique show and to help get the Spam and trout ideas flowing for this year, Art Of The Day brings you work from past Spam And Trout Shows.

Art: SOLD - Swimming In A Sea of Spam by Artist Shawn Marie Hardy
In a time when the world seems to be spinning faster and faster, and we are increasingly stressed out because there isn't enough time to breathe, the last thing we should have to do is weed through unwanted mail. I have to get through loads of Spam just to get the good mail so this was a good opportunity for me to vent some of the irritation I get from that feeling of "swimming in a sea of Spam". These are real Spam messages and the trout is painted, then duplicated in Photoshop. The collage is done on a 12" LP Record--#5 in a series of a project I've started.
