A friend recently asked if I would make something suitable to donate to the inaugural The Art of Nursing Exhibition. Funds raised from the artwork created are to help the survivors of breast cancer in our area. The art is primarily a collection of works created by nurses. Though I am not a nurse, but working in health, I was eager to offer something in hopes of helping to raise money and supporting this event to be on Friday 21st August.
I decided firstly on a hanging fabric collage and painting in the style of DJ Pettitt as learnt from a class I took with her in March at Melbourne, Australia. This is my first attempt since then and I found it enjoyable though disappointed that the background collaged papers are wrinkled despite my attemps to flatten and so these show up on her face and neck.
Not sure whether the painted hanging would be suitable, I decided on doing something different with a 5 x 7 inch canvas and using pink tones. This was also fun and quick to make. I do hope someone likes them enough to buy them and raise money for this worthy cause.
