Big BIG News!!!

One of the reasons I haven’t posted much of my art in recent weeks is that I had been busy creating commission pieces for a very special collection!!

I’d been holding back with the news until everything was officially done and confirmed….because it’s BIG.

 Three of my Torn Paper Paintings are now part of a
special permanent collection put together for the new Stetson Building in the Weymouth location of the
Boston Children’s Hospital.

I am so excited and proud to have been asked to take part in the collection.

This is the result of the weekend that I had gone to Boston with my husband to enjoy looking around and seeing the open studios night. The following day while visiting shops/galleries on Newbury St. we ended up at L’attitude Gallery. The owner/art consultant there creates many corporate collections and this location for the Children’s Hospital is the latest. During our conversation, one thing lead to another and before I knew it I was being asked to create work for this collection!

I had the chance to see the new building last week when I took the art up to them and it’s looking beautiful. They are preparing the installation of the art at this time and the building is set to officially open in another few weeks.

I hope my pieces put a smile on many little faces in their new location!!

Oh Wanda, these pieces are wonderful, I just adore the fishes, they are so whimsical and sweet, I'm sure they will cheer up lots of little souls that no doubt need cheering up when they are in hospital.
Congratulations on this wonderful venture!!!
