This unique acrylic paint on acid-free paper drawing is one in a series of twenty, inspired by the five-hundred dollars I owe the LADWP (Los Angeles Department of Water and Power) in past due utility bills and my frustration with Microsoft Office 365 Outlook email advising me “that words expressing uncertainty lessen your impact” each time I compose an email containing the words maybe, possibly or perhaps.
I am selling the drawings in this series at a discounted price to raise money to pay my past-due LADWP balance. When I sell all twenty drawings in this series I will have enough money to pay my debt to the LADWP.
As for my relationship with Microsoft Office 365? … It’s complicated.
This drawing was made in 2021 and is signed and dated on the back.
This artwork is called “I Talk to You” and it is a performance piece. In the performance I talk to you and you talk to me if you want, or I can just talk to you. You don’t have to talk unless you want to. You can tell me about your life. I can tell you about my life. We can talk about poetry. We can talk about the weather. We can talk about pets. We can talk about friends. We can talk about food. We can talk about social justice. We can talk about anything that does not violate the Etsy terms of service. After the performance I will write you a note on the back of this unique 4” x 6” ink (“I Talk to You”) drawing, sign it, date it, and mail it to you in an envelope.
The price for this performance artwork is $50 for a 20-minute performance. When I receive the purchase confirmation email I will respond to schedule a date and time for the performance. You can choose an audio or video performance-whatever you prefer. Thank you so much for your interest in Margie Schnibbe Bad At Crafts. I look forward to talking to you!
