Zinnia







I received an email last week "A Call for Artists" from my favorite store in Pasadena. It is for a Valentine art show in the store entitled "Heartbreak". I really wanted to submit but couldn't think of a thing to create.
While taking a shower the other day, it hit me. Existing the tub quickly, I went straight for my art supplies and viola! produce "Mend". I submitted it this morning but won't know if "Mend" was chosen until the 25th or so. Now is the hard part...I have to be patient and wait.

Love these hearts.

I've been thinking about making hearts with paperclay and putting them on birch wood.

A few years back I made valentines for all my co-workers. It is fun to still see them posted in cubicles around the office. I think the heart is a universal theme that everyone can relate to on some level. So much meaning. So much to think about. I so enjoy seeing your work. Good luck with the submission.....that "wait" part can sometimes be the hardest part of the whole process !!!!!

What an fantastic piece - and congratulations for having it included in the exhibit. My muse doesn't visit me in the shower but always manages to wake me at 2 AM!
Beautiful blog... I will be back! Deb
