Artist Within Part 7

One of the panels in our project.

Both panels

A close up.

Well, we had a short but productive meeting today. Julie got over her fear of painting stems and I ate too many chocolate chip cookies. It's all her fault! She just insists on feeding me every time we get together. Of course I don't object too much so I guess I have to take some responsibility.
This project hasn't lasted that long, Julie and I haven't known each other very long, but art somehow has a way of bringing people together. When we stop and think about it we have been through some major life events just in the short time we've worked on this project. I'll give you a play by play as soon as we have this work finished. When this piece is done it will be on display at Brick City Center for the Arts in downtown Ocala. The show will be for the month of December - details to follow. After the first of the year it will be sold at auction! That will be exciting!
'til the next installment,

The stems look great! Congrats on getting some chocolate chip cookies. There is nothing quite like homemade cookies. An auction? Now that is interesting.

Yep, that's part of the program with the Marion Cultural Alliance. They connect the artist/teacher with a business person, they create the work and then it's auctioned to support the MCA and another charity. I think it's a great idea and I've met some great people.
