After Yosemite

Once again, Chico's 24 Hr Drive By Art Gallery is doing their annual Puzzle Piece Art Show. The gallery creates large wall size puzzles of interlocking wooden puzzle pieces and the public is invited to pay $10 for a puzzle piece and re-conceive the piece. All Puzzle Pieces are then re-assembled for a two week showing beginning Friday, May 4 and running through Friday May 18, 2007, at which time there will be a silent auction for the pieces.

dietcokehed, her twin kiddos Emily and Nick and I are all participating in this show. I just finished up my piece last night.

Approx: 10" X 24"
Wax, earth, oil pastels and fiber on wood

Wow that's cool. The colors sorta remind me of a satellite photograph.

Ooh, you used wax?!! I can't wait to see it in 3D :) As usual, I didn't get a pic of mine. You'll know it the minute you walk in, I'm sure ;) Emily ended up doing both pieces, Nick was very uninterested. She and I had fun painting while he sat in Daddy's smoke-filled apartment, contact high and TV rotting his brain...
That's coming to an end.

Em was very into her painting and concentrating hard, it was thrilling to watch :D Also, I noticed much later, on the back side where her name was written, she outlined with pen every letter and number (!!!!)

At the suggestion of the guy who took my pieces (I should prolly start learning some names, huh??) we will probably go to the sidewalk tour thing on the 5th.

BTW - I got a piano.

Yeah, I looked around when I dropped my piece off and I spotted your piece and Emily's pieces. I like!

You got a piano! Whoa! That's really great! Are you going to have the kids take lessons?

BTW, did you get something from the Chico Art center about being in a juried show for women only? I got something about it via myspace. We must do this too!

I didn't get the CAC announcement, but I saw it on your comments. I was just reviewing it again today for the time-line :) They make me nervous. I like The Crux and 24 galleries because everyone seems really down to earth and not pretentious at all. The CAC is too.....clean.

BUT, I also feel I need to overcome this fear of the art world :) So I do want to do it...I just don't know what I want to do yet...

Yeah, pack rat me got a piano. It was left behind by some tenants. It's not like a fancy one or anything. Well, actually I don't know, since I know zilch about pianos. Do I know how to play? Nope. Do the kids? Nope. Will they take lessons? *shrug* But of course I HAD to have it...

They say I have a touch of OCD.

That is very nice looking. It looks very organic.

That is just gorgeous.

Oh thank you. I was just doubting it.

New friend?
Hey, just found your journal and I like your style. Can I add you as a friend?

Of course. I'll add you back.

Nice. Do a photo of the complete piece so we can see your piece in relation to the whole.
