I finally finished the altered brick for the "Bricks Along the Journey" brick auction. It is a local charity that raises money for women who are dealing with breast cancer. It covers care and assistance. I love this local charity and it has a lot of personal meaning for me. Anyway, here is this years offering. I can't say it is my best work. But, I really wanted to participate this year. It was hard to come up with an idea this time around. So, it hit me one day that I could do a tree of life. Now mind you, this is not a great photo of it. The brick is done in all sorts of metallic and shimmering finishes which are hard to photograph. It is hard to see here, but the tree has a little set of steps leading up to a doorway in the trunk. The faces represent the faces of humanity and how we are all connected to one another. So, I hope it raises some much needed money for the cause. The auction is in October.
Have a great weekend everyone and if the art Gods are smiling upon me, I shall have some new pieces to share later this weekend. Cio baby.
