On July 7 I participated in the H. E. B. grocery store Art in the Cart event in Granbury from 12-4 and began the collage process on this large high heel. I have finished it this week in my studio but I got a lot of paper glued in the 4 hours and enjoyed visiting with new friends. It helped that my cell phone was left in the car so no email checking and the snacks were too far away so basically I sat and glued. I think this will be one of my 3 entries into the Arlington Museum of Art show HeART Beat show with 12 artists and opens August 13 to September 21. Because it was at H. E. B. I had to add a little grocery ad flyer info on the side of the painting. (The title comes from some text glued on the collage).Here is a closeup below but I hate it that Blogger doesn't give you a way to rotate your photos and I've added it 3 times after rotating it trying to get it come through correctly but just can't seem to get it right. If you know how to rotate pictures in blogger please share and I'll post it. Anyway the turquoise is supposed to be at the top.
Setup at the H E B
Process back at home
On Saturday during the Art in the Cart event at the H E B store in Granbury TX I was knuckle deep in glue and torn paper and had other collages out on the table and in a small cart nearby, when a cute older gentleman came up to the table and said "Where's Art?" I thought he was being a "smarty pants" with some good Texas joshing and said right back.. well, look around there is art all in this area, collage, a glass artist, and a sculptor, and this is art right here under your nose. He took off his sunglasses, looked at me and said "No, I'm looking for Art..your better half." I still didn't know if this was a joke or good Texas humor or if he really thought I had a better half. I said, "Mister, I think you've got your women mixed up. The only Art in my life is this collage". I thought this explanation had him satisfied as he walked away. Later on, he stopped by again and dropped his business card on the table, "Give this to Art and tell him I said hello." Me giving up.... "I certainly will. He will be so sorry he missed you."
