S_V_H Key of C & The Polka image 3

Key of C No.1 18 1/4″ x 10 1/4″ Acrylic paint wood and aluminum

This is the prototype for the series Musical Keys. Since there are no sharps or flats this is the Key of C.  It does have the relative natural minor which would be A minor, but that is another music theory story. The question in my mind throughout the hours it took to plan and produce this first results was, why am I doing this? I guess I thought the idea was worth exploring.  After doing three of these I now think these Keys are kinda cute, and appealing to those that appreciate music. An interestingly of the 24 major and minor scales, guess the obvious, they are all different. That means even if I would go with a similar color scheme all the individual scales would like different. This is the Key of G in Burnt Umber instead of Silver.

Since I will create, signed and numbered hand-made duplicates of these Keys, they will obviously belong in the same Class of works as my Beethoven 5th, as their own Series. That means these works are crafty artworks. The Liechtensteiner Polka artwork came to a stop to work on the Key Series works, and a show I will be displaying my Series artworks in this weekend.  Still, this delay should not affect this artwork, for all that is left are the words and some clean up.
