Today should be the last day to glue plants and animals in place. I need to get this piece back on the easel to finish painting the water and reflections.
I'm happy with how its turning out, but I am having great anxiety about the art show. This recycled art show is the efforts of two different recycled art shows combining. Waste Management sponsored one of the shows in the past. I did their first show, it was a disaster. Most of the art work was soda cans and cardboard box based artwork made by kids.
The Green Art Show held by a local artist association let any artwork the color green, along with art made from recycled materials, enter the show. Most the shows entries where the color green, not recycled art. Kinda hard to go up against an oil painting of a forest.
Recycled art is not understood or appreciated much here in Butler County. Lynn Radford is also entering the show. Her piece will be featuring the trash bubbles she so cleverly invented. I hope that maybe the two of us can inspire people to make trash ART, instead of pieces that are "artfully" arranged trash. Crossing my fingers I don't regret doing this show.
( I can't even explain how much I am dreading the show's opening night. I really hope I am wrong.
Thinking positively, this time it is going to be fabulous!!)
