I don't usually jump in to something without really thinking about it. But when I saw that Jenn (noodleandlou) was organizing an art auction for Catherine Thursby (redshoes), I couldn't respond fast enough. Catherine is one of my first and oldest blog friends and a crazy-talented artist. She has always supported and encouraged me (and made me laugh).
I have a stash of items that I could contribute but I was more like the girl with a closet full of clothes but nothing was good enough. I needed something new. I'll leave out the messy details but I wanted the art to be red and black, with paper and paint, with dots and hearts. The two-piece heart was from a stash of magazine pages and I think it's a perfect reflection of friendship and love.
So...the auction. It's on instagram and happens on Saturday, April 26 here.
And, Catherine, I have to include the next photos for you. Hope they make you smile (as you attempt to see my artwork in the background).
