Today the electors are annointing Donald Trump as our next president, despite the overwhelming popular vote for Hillary Clinton. The efforts at recount and the small groups of demonstrators at state houses where the electors are voting, don't make any difference. I just finished this piece, "SOLD", as a small act of protest and resistance.
The gold in the background is genuine gold leaf. Only the best for the international oligarchs. Much could be said. I will let SOLD speak for itself.
Addendum on December 20th: I should have said I was playing around with the idea, and this is what I had so far on the day the electors met. It continues to evolve. It isn't finished at all. I'll post pictures of it when it finally is done!
