Title: "The Cog in the Machine"
Size: 8" x 10" Stretched Canvas (sides painted and ready to hang)
Medium: Acrylic Paint, Finished with a clear gloss

With the growing age of technology, each of us become more and more just a number in a system. Just a piece in the game. Just a cog in the machine. Something that is not valued-- it's used and thrown out. This painting says differently though. It says "I am much more than just another cog in your "great" machine" -- meaning my value is much more than just my Social Security number or job title or salary or some socioeconomic survey percentage. I am a person, and I stand out. This is an excellent present for any hardcore steampunk fan wanting to start a revolution. Go ahead. Say it-- you are not a cog...

**NOTE: It was pointed out to me recently that a band called Powderfinger wrote a song in which the lyrics say "just another cog in the great machine." This painting is in no way affiliated with that song-- as I had previously did not even know it existed! (I'm much more of a bluegrass type of guy, myself!). I've grown up hearing the phrase of "cogs in a great machine" and always figured that this was an expression.
