blow up some art

it's been some time since i thought about this, but i had a very enticing offer on the table for a potential buyer of my art at one time .. during my first public showing ever at the former cup and saucer in the river market area, i told a partially drunk fella that i would make a performance art out of a piece of art .. he liked the piece and contemplated a purchase of a painting that had a long line of fireworks drapsed in thick paint .. i told him if he wanted the piece that i would take a high res photo of the painting, then blow up the firework string, and frame the pristine photo with the mutilated artwork and house them under one nice frame .. i never heard back from this fella .. sometimes, you know ... cheers and the offer is and piece is still on the table ..

You know I love this idea. We will make it an event or you can pick a time/place when to do it. I'll buy the piece. And we'll blow it up together. Tim West.
