|Rachelle LeBlanc's Rugs for our Show|
A second mat featuring my fiesty friend Della is in the works - this one may be submitted for a juried group show at the Swoon Gallery in Halifax later in July. Artists from all mediums are being challenged to submit a piece of art that "celebrates the sweet tooth" and to think "outside the cake box". The title for the show is "How Sweet It Is". Hmmm - wonder what Della can come up with!
This past spring artists were asked by Swoon to go to their website, view the displayed art and find inspiration to create a new piece for a group show. My choice was the abstract painting "Emerging" by Monika Wright. I was drawn to the colours that Monika uses in her beautiful work and the freedom of the shapes. Once finished, I chose to call my piece "Firestorm" - as it brought back memories of seeing on the news the red hot eruptions of lava from Mount St. Helens.
