8 x 10 x 2". Bristol board, watercolor, color pencils, ink, plastic straws and Elmer's glue. I've yet to come up with a name for it, which is unusual for me.

This art is made of three layers of painted masonite board. Between the raised layers is a string of lights, which in effect, backlight the art between the layers. In daylight it is bold and graphic. In the dark it's ambient light becomes etherial and dream-like.
I always create such art while working outside. This piece was made at least ten years ago. At the moment, I have no place to work outside, so smaller 3D art made of paper are created in my studio.
There is an actual string connected from the fishing pole to the fishing hook on the edge of the art. This was exhibited and sold during an art show.
I would customize a string of lights to proper length and placement of the bulbs. There have been several shocking experiences from doing something wrong while wiring the strings of lights. Not fun. The art can be turned on by a rotary switch that I would add. A simple, effective design when done correctly.
