Artist's description:

A cheerful and vibrantly colored painting with a deeper message. It's a medium sized still life artwork showing sunglasses, keys, a belt, purse and binder in a clear bin. The entire painting is created from a single continuous line that never touches or crosses itself.

This is about something that we all deal with so often now- security in public spaces and what we are willing to be subjected to to feel safe. They are of my own personal belongings in a bin after going through a security checkpoint in a public courthouse. I felt a bit flustered and wronged that day in the courthouse lobby, holding my pants up with my hand after being asked to remove my belt and place it in the bin to be scanned with x-ray. It was a bit embarrassing and to be forced to do so in order to be about my business- it felt I was being suspected of wrongdoing and treated as a criminal with no cause at all- all for the sake of security. Sure, every citizen there had to the same, but it poked at me and on a day I really didn't need more stress. I asked myself, how much more discomfort and invasion of privacy will we put up with as a society for the sake of safety? Does every persons belongings being scanned for weapons make me feel safer, make anyone feel safer? I took a photo of my things in that bin and the memory of that moment and decided right then, I had to paint it later on and address this common situation.

It will add color and interest and look lovely in any nook or space.
It's 11 x 14 inches and created with acrylic paint and paintmarkers. It has 3 coats of varnish and is highly durable and cleanable. The painting is has a custom made frame and is ready to hang.
