HOPE, HEART, HEALING

Took the challenge...to make a Valentine for President Obama. My friend Dd urged me on and once an idea is lit in my mind it expands like a wild fire. So after seeing the art at MFA residency, I returned to studio and started laying out some supplies, words turning over in my head, forms coming and going. I ripped a lovely heart in 4 pieces and couldn't put it back together again. What! Yesterday afternoon when some of trip prep done I returned again to the mess in the studio and made a creation. it had to happen quickly...time was disappearing and it had to be a one off because I couldn't sink further into the project, but the mind no longer wanders in ideas and now I am free to finish off the packing and to send it off to White House. The copper sparkles don't come off well in the image, alas.
We all need some extra love and support in these trying times.
Blessings to you all.
