Finally, some artwork! I scanned these and they are a little "bright" on my monitor, but I could not get them toned down. Hopefully you will not be blinded looking - trust me, they are really nice in person.
The pieces are a mock-up that I made for a proposal last week. I was invited to appear before the Board of Directors of a local public library to offer my ideas for art. I made this little quartet on claybord - they are each 6x6 - so they could see the colors I had in mind. Plus I wanted them to see how cool the claybord is, the texture, etc.
To say I was wreck is an understatement. I used to do this "presentation" stuff all the time in my previous (corporate) life, but doing it with my art just made me crazy. I spent a lot of time getting organized and even prepared a Power Point presentation.
Then(lucky for me), the Universe intervened and we ended up in a room with no projector, ha! So I pretty much scrapped my whole talking plan. It was definitely for the best though cause I got really excited (like I do) and I think everyone could see my true enthusiasm for the project.
These circles really rock my world right now. The connections and compartments have so many meanings for me. I feel this is an expansion of my Community series in some ways, like the Community pieces are moving toward a new Connection series. Geez, what is it with me and all these C's????
C. See. Si.
And yippee, I got the gig! They want 8-16x16 paintings.
Woo hoo, I ordered my claybords and can't wait for them to arrive so I can get started.
Life is indeed good. To do what I love, surrounded and supported by those I love......well, it just doesn't get any better than this.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
