Heartstrings Project 1

This is a mixed media project I’ve had in mind for months now.  This is the first of what will be several renditions of the idea.  It starts with a stretched canvas 10×13, painted in a light brown acrylic.  Holes are drilled along either side.  Then a strip of burlap is tacked on across the middle using guitar string holders.and guitar strings are placed across like a musical staff.  I placed a hammered copper heart in the middle, under the strings.  Above and below are dry rub transfers of a portion of sheet music from the 18th century song called Home Sweet Home.  I covered the back of the canvas in burlap and will frame it in a copper frame.
