Donation piece Done. 3-26-11

Live With Hope
I have been so busy lately, I barely know which end is up!  And believe me when I say, my ends are very easy to distinguish.  The paper packet project is nearing completion and our art show is April 15th.  One more class meeting to tie up loose ends and answer any question the artists may have and we are there.  I submitted jpegs for a collage show at a gallery in Woodstock, Illinois.  I had to update all my biographical stuff too because it looked so lame, received my application for the Art of the Land Show (an annual event now at the Starline Gallery in Harvard) and I am feverishly trying to finish three to four new collages.  In between all this I did finish a little piece for Michelle's annual Avon Walk for the Cure.  I have been lucky enough to be involved in this small way for that past 3 years.  What I normally do is compose a work just for this fund raiser but because of my commitments this year, I just am really artistically tapped.  I had this work that you see finished here, already in progress though.  It was intended for a fund raiser in Moss Norway (the now famous first ever Twitter Art Exhibit).  Well I never finished this one ( I did however complete another work which hung in the Moss Norway local library for a month). So I changed it up and voila!  I intend to matte it and frame it for the fund raiser. The work is a 5 by 7 inch mixed media and collage on 300lb watercolor paper.  I have been using Arches lately and just really love that paper.  So Michelle, I know you are on Spring Break but call me when you come home.  I just need to matte and frame (have the materials ready) and it is yours :)

Hi Kathy!
I love this little lady and the bird upon her head. Very sweet...reminds me of Jean with the curly short hair. :) I know you have been so busy and I appreciate that you still make time to create a wonderful piece for our fundraiser, year after year. Your creativity continues to amaze me and I am blessed to know you. <3
Michelle :)
