Let’s art it up a little, shall we? You won’t believe what I cooked up recently.
This little number went to a good cause: the #twitterartexhibit project in Norway, organized by David Sandum. The exhibit consists entirely of hand painted (ahem or otherwise arted) postcard size pieces of art by artists around the globe. Even more cool than that, it was organized via Twitter!
David Sandum has done a fabulous job of recruiting artists and following through on arrangements for the display and for publicity and so on. I think it turned into a much bigger job than he originally envisioned. So again, thank you David Sandum, fine artist!
I mailed my card in October. It arrived safe and sound, and I can recognize the envelope in one of the photos* David posted showing the cards piling up on his kitchen table. Very fun!
Seriously, though, what a great idea for a fundraiser. I am always happy to help out a children’s library. If we don’t get our kids to enjoy reading, who will read what we write??
Here’s another view of the piece I created for this wonderful exhibit. It’s in my oven because I live in the Pacific Northwest and it is the rainy season and I wanted to be certain the glue was completely dry before packing up the postcard to mail to Norway. It worked out great as a drying cupboard, but it seemed a little too hot at first and I was concerned that the oven rack might scorch the paper — so I grabbed the closest potholder.
I hope you enjoyed this quick peek into my oven. In a way, it reminds me of the expression of not wanting to know what goes on inside the sausage factory — you just want to enjoy the sausage. Well, regardless, please rest assured there’s more in the pipeline. I have some very exciting things planned for Reptitude in 2011.
