Today I am done painting an art chest entitled "Ode to Chagall". Marc Chagall is a famous russian painter. The chest is for an auction to raise money for the school programs in Sweetwater, Tennessee. It is always nerve racking to make something to be auctioned off as one is always aftraid that no one will bid on it. I happen to really like this piece. Not having painted in quite a while it was fun to do something as free as a piece inspired by a painter whose work is loose and imaginative. He uses such fun imagery! I think I will absolutely incorporate some umbrellas in my own work as well as his dream like visuals
It is funny how happy I am when I am creating something. No matter what it is, a quilt, a wall hanging, a painting, as long as I am designing and creating, my soul sings.
Well, I have to go varnish this piece and put on the hardware. Wish me luck that someone bids and it raises money for the kids and art.
