If any of you out there want to own an original art piece made by me, AND donate to an amazing charity for autistic children, then now's your chance to do both! It is the very same piece that I have as my blog header above. I donated this crown collage to A. Skate Foundation a while back for this purpose. If any of you are in the area, the silent art auction is this Saturday evening, April 2nd in Venice Beach, CA. To find out more go check out Upper Class Label (the host of this wonderful event).
Read about Crys Worley's story and why she started A. Skate in her bio here. She is one amazing and inspiring woman.
When I created this piece, I modeled it after my original crown collage with Proverbs shown here. It reads "Wisdom will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor" Proverbs 4:9 I can't remember the exact dimensions, but I think it's around 9x11inches on 1/4 inch plywood. When I made this I used a lot of copper/bronze along with turquoise and sea foam green so it looks like metal which has that wonderful patina from aging. I kind of wanted it to look like it has been sitting in the ocean for a while...maybe buried in a treasure chest...or something...
If you are interested in this piece, but are not in the area, let me know SOON and maybe your bid can be included in the silent auction. Sadly something came up and I won't be able to go myself. : ( But I hope if you are in the area you will go and support this cause and maybe even go home with a cool piece of art!
