blankcanvas.org



On Saturday, I took part in a blankcanvas.org Artist Throwdown Event, as a fundraiser for Art with Heart. Teams of artists came together to create art on the fly, then the pieces were auctioned off. My friend Doris organized our team and we created a mixed media collage with circles as the unifying element. We all just made a bunch of elements out of decorative papers and paint, then we worked as a team to put together a composition out of the elements. It was great to do something so loose and spontaneous.

Although the weather was less than stellar (I was wearing 3 layers), we had a fun time and better yet, it was for charity. Art with Heart is an organization that provides art therapy to disadvantaged and sick children. A worthy cause, indeed.



Here's the finished piece.
