This was going to be an expose. However when i started to look for the particular image, was not able to find it. So down the road of memory lane. I take loads of photos, very few include me as i’m holding the camera. I’ve not shared my meals out or my private live, like you who might be reading this. I thought, why not let you see into my world. (could be something you might enjoy doing for yourself.)
As i went through my many photos there were images that are indicative of who I am. You might know me as a volunteer who can’t seem to say no. However Im learning lol.
My cottage is full of art as small as it is, the walls are full and give joy, so not getting rid of any KonMarie. Some by me, a wonderful collection of friends and of course Fred Hunt r.i.p.
My second little FREE Library, first one fell apart. Painting in the kids who use it. Visit also the other two that were built by Ted Johnson and r.i.p. Dean Sherwin who replicated his house. We have the credit of starting this phenomena here in Lake Worth Beach. Mary Lindsey wrote a successful REAP grant and thus enabled the literacy program to continue.
No hobbies so to speak of my life is art of all types, mosaics, painting, calligraphy. Teach, more like encourage those who have the desire to learn. Currently initiating another great event “big does not make it better” Mail ART done successfully in Coconut Grove then for our Centennial Celebration and now putting Lake Worth Beach back on the ART map. Not easy with the distancing but oh so perfect for just this time of separation 6ft. distancing. Valentines just around the corner perhaps this will bring out the love of communication via pen paper and lots of hearts.
Mail hearts actually meant to type Mail ART subliminal message here. Stay tune for the next reveal.
Ir’s been some time since I last posted. I got into a funk and then after the 6th the horror just hit and i spiraled into unbelief. I watched the TV hesitating to do my celebratory envelope of joy and celebration. Slowly I pulled out ephemera and stamps i’ve been saving for this important day. The envelope is at the bottom. *
A friend encouraged me to get out and do what i do well. So went to mtg. signed application and worked at home prepping with kids. Thought them to use a graph on how to enlarge a small image to a 10 x 10 wall, however the wall turned out to be 7 x 10. We made it work!
Plenty of 10 ft sections to show case the local artists who wish to share their talent.
We studied our graph paper and measured out where, what would go where and who would paint what parts. We were able to work on the wall all at the same time.
as we started early. by lunch we took a proper break, well deserved. Last minute adjustments were made on site. The easiest way to do this was to draw and cut stencils. This method is now is being borrowed by our neighbors from Barton Elementary. As always when something like this happens lots of visitors and volunteers drop by who want to participate and this is how we acquired Lena.
To give them credit, we had been assigned two spaces because of distancing. So we opted to memorialize the moment and the time. Love community and togetherness. This is not the end. Next week Part 2 and our finale.
