Oh, what FUN! This project, part of the World & Eye Arts Center - Telling Tales: Stories of Home exhibit, was two days and no more. Two days to paint 6 feet of panel, hand print papers and design fabulous clothing for the characters. Well, and to listen to the story and figure out what to paint!
Follow the journey of Gerri Sant - listen to her story of home here.
I was tickled by Gerri's wry sense of humor, so the concept came quickly and the characters came ALIVE for me, demanding exactly what to wear and where to pose. I am gaga over these two! It was sad to see them leave my studio and head off to the World & Eye Arts Center. I've instructed my husband to begin looking for doors or panels at the curb, in addition to reclaimed wood. I can just see a series of these couples hanging out in my house.
