The education center works hard to teach people how to be kind to the land.
This year's theme is "Touching Earth". The show will run from June 5 through June 30, 2013. You can read more about it here.
I had intended to make two submittals, but was only able to get one done in time. This is "Healing Hand Touches the Earth". I blew up a tracing of my hand, and took a copyright free photo (provided by the U.S. Government. :) ) and placed it in the palm of the hand. I then did a foiled healing spiral over the earth.
It is similar to the Hamsa, or the Hand of Fatima, but it is different because this middle eastern hand never carries the spiral.
I took down a boatload of other nature related pieces when I found they were light on entries. Wouldn't you know, just as I pulled into the parking lot, the clutch pedal refused to come back up......so, that meant a tow to Troy. I was grateful I was in a safe place and that nothing untoward happened and that no one was inconvenienced...in fact, I was able to do some paperwork for the show for Sister Leanne while waiting for the tow truck.
But...I discovered I had accidentally left my bag of sketches for Elizabeth Barton's class over in New Lebanon when I went for stitching day on Thursday....and when I got home from MEEC (after an interesting ride in the tow truck), the chemotherapy hit me hard....and I was in bed for three days sleeping. I am only now sort of among the living. And I am woefully behind in Elizabeth's class...in fact, I haven't even posted anything...I hope that I'm not kicked out!
The best laid plans of mice and men.......
