"Fleeting II" is one of Laura's "Couples" pieces, the inclusion of two antique bottles being the shared characteristic. The clear bottle reads "Dr Daniel's Veterinary Colic Drops No. 1" and the green bottle has irridescent sparkles inside. A copper painted cast bronze chestnut box with a hinged lid (hinge custom-made by Laura from an antique watch band) sits below a shell cameo with a pale blue and gold telescope lens filter behind it. The dazzling light will radiate and change color depending on the sightline angle.
Laura found the Borzois Russian Wolfhound chatelaine brooch in this piece as well as the colic drops bottle the same week and this occurrence was her motivator to begin work on this panel.
