Exciting news… I have entered my work in a local art show and was accepted! My work hasn’t been in a show since I was in college. I’m hoping that people respond to it and maybe, just maybe .. buy it. I don’t want to get my hopes up, though. I got the official word and saw the official invitation yesterday. There’s just something about seeing your name in print! The show is called Treasures. Here’s my work:
Snowflake of the Past
This work features a painted canvas adorned with a crocheted doily I hand stitched on. I collect doilys and thought this was a beautiful way to display one.
The Gift of Knowledge
This work is a hand painted muslin square that I hand stitched to painted watercolor paper. I believe that knowledge is a gift that people take for granted. Not everyone in the world is lucky enough to be given an education. Our society forgets that and often doesn’t take advantage of the opportunities its given.
