T’was bright but t’was but a dream (keyring and original)

For our inaugural visit to City of Colours in Birmingham last year we painted a giant (5m x 5m) version of this piece and since I currently have access to a laser cutter thought I’d commemorate it with a keyring (5cm x 5cm) sized memento. I’m still not entirely sure where I stand on whether one should attempt to paint laser engraved items or whether that detracts from the point of laser engraving them in the first place. The artist in me wants to paint them but sometimes they just look better as plain wood. Plus they are complete fecker to paint properly. I’m still undecided however.

If you’ve ever had a dream so real that upon waking you need to take a couple of minutes to work out exactly what’s going on then you’ve probably got some idea of the inspiration behind the original piece. A half remembered memory of something that really never was. It sounds quite vague but makes for a good picture (and keyring). Right, what’s next to get lasered?
