I am going away in a couple of weeks to a week long Art retreat and workshop called Fibres West. One of the things we were asked to bring is a 15 x 15 cm (6 in square) artwork to donate. The idea is that all the donated items will be made available for sale for $15 during the event. It is a great way to raise funds for the next event and also participants get to take home a piece of art that will be a reminder of their time at the retreat.
I decided to make a miniature version of one of my textile landscapes. I am pleased with the way it turned out and will enjoy seeing someone else take it home. The hardest part of being an artist who gives away or sells work occasionally is parting with the pieces that I really like. When that happens I remind myself that my house is already full of stuff and it is a good feeling to let artworks go to a new home where they will be loved.
