Here's a post for you that has nothing to do with flowers what so ever! But it's all about Worcester MA and I'm all for that. :-)
The Worcester Educational Development Foundation for Worcester's Public Schools is holding a fundraiser this week called Hearts for Arts in support of arts programing in the schools. You can see how that might be dear to my, ahem, heart.
Any how, they asked 50 artists (your truly included, who does not really think of herself as an artist, but just rather creative from time to time) to take a 16" x 16" x 2" wooden heart and go to town with it.
I've got to say, that I don't think I've ever carved anything other than a bar of ivory soap as a kid, so this was a challenge, but the wood just felt like it had to be carved to me.
collaging a map of Worcester was the next step. And since this is about hearts and love, it needed butterflies, because when you fall in love you should feel butterflies!!!
I've seen some of the other hearts, and let me tell you, they're amazing! All so different, all beautiful - I'm sure you will be able to find one to your liking to bid on. :-)
PS The piece is called "Woo-ed"!
