Behind the art: you & me

You and Me finalI made this little piece for my dear friend C’s birthday, which is today. I even got to give it to her in person when we were in Baltimore, a rare treat for me.

It is a small but thick piece of foam core board.  I covered it in papers that spoke “friendship” to me and rolled on paint in translucent colors I thought C would like.

Then I drew the two girls, added text stickers, a bit of texture, and finished it off with some rub ons and doodling.

    thanks so much, my dear one–i love love love my personalized and heart-made gift! and i keep moving it around: first i had it on my night stand so i would see it when i woke up; then i moved it to the living room because i spend so much time there; then i took it to work to remind me that there’s a whole wonderful world outside of my office. and now it’s back on my night stand. :-) i take it (and you, of course) with me always. many, many thanks for all the love and care you packed into a small, beautiful square! love you!
