Pieces of Us

This Saturday is the opening night of my Pieces of Us show at Regeneration! I am so excited to hang the pieces and see the reactions. Excited and scared, but mostly excited! LOL

I am just glad that the day has come! Here is the info for the show:

These pieces are all born from personal events that have been going on in the past few months. I don't really talk about those things here on the blog, but as an artist, it is bound to come out in my work! I also kept a strong influence on using scraps of paper and materials, whether they be the remnants from previous projects, or found metal objects from the street. Regeneration is a shop with an important message. They only sell and carry recycled goods, and I think that it is important to keep in that theme. By honoring their mission, I was forced to stretch my artistic brain and work only within what was in a certain box I have of scrap. Luckily, when a piece is too small for my other boxes that I think it will get lost on the bottom, I toss it in the "smaller" scrap box, and some of those gorgeous papers are still pretty large. (I swear, there is a method to my madness! ;)

I also want to take a minute to thank everyone for their supportive words and emails since I started sharing the pieces! It means a lot to me that you take the time to share your words with me!! My confidence got a well needed shot in the arm! THANK YOU!

If you would like to see pictures of the pieces so far, you can go here. I will be adding more this afternoon!

I will probably very quite until after the show. SO much to do! Next week I will post pics from lots of recent events! A lot has been going on that I need to share!

I'm trying desperately to make it. I might be showing up with Tyn for just a half hour and then I have to run. Can't wait!
