Each month I meet with a group of artists and we work towards putting on a theme-related show of our works. I thoroughly enjoy working with this talented group because our viewpoints and works are very diverse and this makes for an interesting and visually exciting show. This year we are to create a work a month based on a word chosen at the previous month's meeting. Last month's word was Germinate. (Click here to view Andrea's Germinate work.)
Many of my works are inspired by ideas about "community" and this work sprang from the same well. I covered my foundation with bits of text torn from my community newspaper and added many layers of glaze and paint to depict the germination of a community.
