Collaging and Collecting..
I have begun collage painting anew since I signed up to lead a book project at the local elementary.. The book will be all about the way we get energy from the foods we grow in a garden, etc - should be fun. I need to figure out how to get 19 first graders to do components of each page together - it'll work out.
Here's a piece I created for the YS Arts Council show 'Art For Change'. In 2011, when Haiti was struck by an earthquake , I held a tie-dye sock making to raise funds...aeveral local shops sold our socks and we raised about $400. Maybe you can see the tiny spirits..surrounding the island with loving care. Look closely. The piece will be on exhibit at YS Arts Council with opening gala on 2/15.
Here too is a photo of fabrics my generous friend Yuki brought to give away during our ourgathering..Monday Morning Artists. I immediately called my quilting friends...who rushed in to collect! Pam Geisel was already planning to come. Yuki hand dyed these cottons and also offered art quilting books. She will bring more to the Fairborn Art Association meeting tomorrow...looking forward to it!
