Learning Tree Hands

Saxon’s pre-school, The Learning Tree School, is having their Spring Auction and Party,Bella Notte
on Thursday, April 8.

Somehow, I got volunteered to be in charge of the class art project that will be auctioned off. I collaborated with Saxon’s teacher, Ms. Ruth, and her class to create a work of art called Learning Tree Hands.

If you guessed that I was trying to create a photograph of a clean, perfectly-symmetrical circle from their little hands, you would be absolutely correct. Seriously, what was I thinking? Initially deflated at my inability to nail the shot I had preconceived, but when I returned to the studio, I realized three and four year olds are rarely perfect and rarely clean. So, I thought this was a perfect portrait of little Learning Tree Hands, illustrating both the independence and the differences/similarities of the children.

Using the image, I created the class art project (titled, Learning Tree Hands) as a limited-edition, ready-to-hang (no frame required!) metallic gallery wrap. Hopefully, parents will see this as being perfect for their child’s room, playroom or some other fun place in their house and start a bidding war for charity.

Great Art for $20

I stumbled upon a fun website, 20×200, whose motto is Great Art $20. Really.  20×200 offers a couple of new pieces of art each week. One photograph. One work on paper. The smallest size is reprinted in the largest batch (200) and sold for $20. 20×200 also offers two larger sizes for “bolder collectors.” 
 Meadow Lark from 20x200
Last week, I purchased this portrait of a Meadow Lark by Laura Levine. I paid my $20 and got a very nice print. One tip: they sell quickly, so get ‘em while they’re hot.
