Summer Nights, 13″ x 18″, acrylic and glaze 2014
So I am not off to the Javits Center in NYC for the weekend but my collaborative painting I created for Ellen Dorsch of Creative Women is. http://www.creativewomen.net/
We discussed the possibility of working on something together. I created this piece based on some photographs she gave me. The idea was that since this is a summer show for housewares and gifts evoking warmth and summertime in February would be a good idea. Ellen has graciously offered me the opportunity to gain some feedback from responses to the piece in her booth.
It was an interesting process for me working from a photograph. I am used to creating work based on what springs out of my own imagination. There was a different discipline that I both really appreciated and need to understand better if I want to expand my opportunities for more commissioned work. Isn’t it grand to learn more about our own creative brains?
Here’s the link to information about the trade show.
