One year since I started the Sunflower Project, to encourage lovers of art and of life to share their gifts with the world.
This has resulted in 30 paintings completed for the project, 18 of them with the assistance of donated funds from supporters. 25 paintings have been mailed, my gift, to people who have signed up on the web site to participate in the Sunflower Project.
And then, the project grew: Taking It Global and Wish 150 invited me to contribute a piece to the Alberta Mosaic. The detail above is from the panel I contributed to the mosaic, and is based on the Sunflower Project. The Mosaic was unveiled in Edmonton at the end of October, and there are plans being discussed to have it exhibited in Calgary as well.
As a result of receiving the honorarium for contributing to the mosaic, I am able to produce and mail 30 more Sunflower Seed paintings!
I look forward to carrying the Sunflower Project into 2018 and watching as those seeds grow into something beautiful!
