sold a collage!

I sold this collage today!  The person who bought it liked it because he teaches astronomy and to him it looked more like a galaxy than a hurricane. Maybe I should make a few more, change the name to Galaxy, and see if I can sell some more…

Another person at church asked if I had any more of the hurricane collages for sale, and when told not yet, she let me know that when I did, she would be interested. Then, because my Tsali collage was such a hit at my showing at church, I managed to secure a commission for a couple.  They want a collage similar in style to this one but featuring their two cats.  I am excited for these new opportunities this summer. 

Here is a collection of photos from my most recent show at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greensboro.  It has been up since the beginning of May and will come down in about two weeks.  According to the Visual Arts Committee, I am the first artist to have sold anything from a show in the sanctuary.

I finished a new collage this week.  My inspiration for this one came from my week-long course at Ocracoke in March with NCCAT (North Carolina Center for Advancement of Teaching).  The seminar topic was sea level rise and the impact on the coast.  One of our speakers discussed hurricanes and I started drawing a radar image of a hurricane in my sketchbook.  Thus, this collage was born.
