I've been wanting to... so I'm doing it, a project inspired by Ex-Votos. In Spanish exvoto means 'votive offering.' These little tin paintings depict stories, explaining why the giver is giving thanks. They are personal stories, hung in public to share and inspire.
I think 'motherhood' is an appropriate subject, especially this close to Mother's Day.
So this series of little devotional paintings is to be offered and dedicated to mothers and motherhood. If you have a story that should be painted and shared, send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is going to be a special, private unveiling of these paintings at the Spring Unveiling at Cannon Beach at Heritage Gallery. I'll post more about that soon.
I've been working on getting the tin plates ready today. I'm shooting some video in the studio too. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!
