A New Project.............


I found out yesterday that I was accepted into Kennedy Gallery's "20/20 Show". This is how the show is described on their website:

"Participating artists create 25 small artworks, each 8×8″ – only 20 are displayed at one time. All pieces must present a collective theme when hung; however, pieces should stand alone."

My theme is "Branches, Blossoms & Leaves" and each image will represent one of the four seasons. I am printing all the pieces on Unryu paper, mounting them to 8 x8" board and coating each one with cold wax medium.


Actual Piece.......



This is the image I submitted for the jury......... 

A couple of weeks ago I decided that even if I did not get into the show, I was going to do this project anyway. I am fascinated by the lines and curves of tree branches. Sometimes I feel like I am watching a dance, especially if there is a small breeze blowing.

I am also very excited about having structure and guidelines. There is something about knowing each image has to be the same size and shape, while fitting in with a theme that I find very satisfying. It feels like I will really be able to explore this subject and create a unifying body of work.

The only catch is.......... all twenty five pieces must be delivered by May 3rd and I have only finished two of them! I have started creating the digital images, so the next step will be the prints and mounting. 

Deadlines are good................
