Mini Memory Tree Giveaway

September 23rd, 2010

The piece I started last week became this mini memory tree. It's a little hard to capture in a photo the way this looks, but the surface is covered in clear medium, which gives it a nice gloss, and I carved the tree shape into it before it dried, so it has lots of interesting dimension and texture. When I painted over it , some little pockets of blue formed in the sky that I'm really digging. I'm calling it a "Mini Memory Tree" and I did it to give away.

I'll be giving this piece away to one person who donates (any amount is wonderful!) to the Alzheimer's Association for the walk I'm doing this weekend in memory of my grandmother who passed away last November.

I'll be counting any donation by the end of September towards the giveaway. I'll randomly select one person on October 1st and send them this 4"x4" mixed-media piece for their very own! You can find out more and make a donation here.

p.s. I had an amazing time at Squam and loved creating with and meeting so many creative people! I'll have more to share about that soon!

p.p.s. A lot of folks have been asking about Art Every Day Month, which is right around the corner! I'll be talking a lot more about it in October along with sign-up info and how to participate, so stay tuned!

I love how those blue sky bits show through!
I think it’s wonderful that you are doing the walk in honour of your grandmother. I’m not in a position to donate right now but I’m sending out lots of donation energy and I hope you raise a lot.

Hi Leah
Wow, Congrats on the piece. I like it.

Lovely Piece Leah! And very neat to see the before-and-after shots!

Would a donation to the Cdn Alzheimers Socieety count? It won’t do anything for your fundraising goal but…it is such a worthy cause. What a horrible disease.

The tree is beautiful. I made a donation in memory of my grandmother, it was so nice that they allow that designation! I hope you get to your goal, Alzheimer’s is close to my heart as well.
