A couple from Peoria asked me to do a collage using a panoramic photo they'd taken. The photo featured purple martin houses and a bench dedicated to the man's grandfather who had instilled in him a love of purple martins. In my art, I added a purple martin in the foreground, fragments of a poem by Carl Sandburg about purple martins, and the park name and man's grandfather's name. The piece is 12"H x 36"W.
It was great fun to be the featured artist at C2C Gallery in Grand Haven, Michigan. The opening was Friday, July 7th and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with tourists and locals about my art process. The gallery sold 4 of the 20 pieces on display in 24 hours! To date, they've sold 7 works, and the show will be up through the end of August.
