Some time ago I was asked to donate a piece of art to a fundraiser for breast cancer. And this is what I made.
The fundraiser is through the magazine Cloth Paper Scissors, and in this months magazine there is the above spread of artwork that gives information about it. If you look closely you can see my creation among the many lovely pieces.
Here is a a picture of the full piece. The bird part is created on a piece of matboard that is then mounted onto heavy watercolour paper. The bird is a drawing I did that I then transfered onto a tea bag and added bits of fabric, colour and textures too.
The items are for sale starting on August 28, through this website. The fundraiser is through the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
I didn't realize it at the time, but I used the same bird drawing on a piece I created this week.
It was a fun piece I made for my collaging class (with Claudine Hellmuth)
Looks a bit like Super Bird to me.
