Creating Art on Demand - I had always imagined this to be difficult however I have had the pleasure of creating some unique pieces.
All of these pieces were created especially for Freedom Waters Foundation.
In addition, I have donated select pieces to Freedom Waters Foundation as a way to earn money - for a donation you can purchase an original oil painting - Visit: https://www.freedomwatersfoundation.org/art-show-fundraiser/
From an anonymous phone call about a step fatther who passed away at the age of 92, the woman on the other end spoke so highly of this man and how wonderful he was to ther and her mother and his true love of the water and fishing. She wanted to donate his extensive fishing gear to an organization that would appreciate and use it.
As an avid fishing person I was asked to go through the donation - I was astonished by the collection and my "artist" eye knew right away that something more needed to be done with the collection of lures. I teamed up with another volunteer and we were able to create a unique piece of artwork.
This piece was used to raise funds for Freedom Waters Foundation.
For Freedom Waters Foundation 10th anniversary I wanted to create a piece specifically to commemorate this wonderful organization and all they do in service for others.
The piece for tonight's benefit - was created using the same techniques I use in larger scale paintings.
Each component of this design is made up of a variety of cut fabrics and arranged much like you would a mosaic. They are top stitched to blend the fabrics, filling in any gaps and adding depth. They are then sewn atop the background fabric, using free motion sewing techniques.
