Community Project

I have been very busy - sadly neglecting my blog...I was asked by the Josephine County Juvenile Justice Center to participate in a community fundraiser. Each artist was to "art up" an very large (at least 4 ft across and 6" deep) dimensional heart for display during the month of April in town. The heart was textured and I had to spackle it and sand it down before I started. It was really fun and challenging to figure out a design using the limitations of the shape. Here is a slide show of the progress of the heart. I can not wait to see what others did with these....

  3. I love this piece, and the photos of it in class. It was a joy to take your class at Artfest. I'll be looking at album covers in a whole new light! :)

    Keep in touch,
