Open Your Heart

I just finished this small collage for a charity art auction. Actually its for a friend who is having some fundraisers to get her back for a trip to South Africa to help children there. She sweetly asked if I would donate some art for an auction she is having and I gladly said I would. This is small, its 6x8 and will come with a small easel for a tabletop. Normally I am not into hearts, but for some reason I was in a real "Hearty" mood last night and started this.
Its amazing how a small piece can almost take as long as a larger piece! I have just been so creatively dry, I wanted to start to do something to donate, and I do still intend to do more-hopefully this next time a larger piece. I just started playing last night and this is where it ended up. I like it-I really like the bright, cheery colors.

This is a beautiful piece. Seems quite perfect for what it was intended to. A heart does show us hope, doesn't it?
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Oooh Kristy! I LOVE this piece! And I know what you mean about small pieces taking the same amount of time or longer to complete! I do a lot of small pieces and those little ATC's take awhile! Probly because I'm obsessive about placement! TFS Lots of sunshine from Florida, xxo Astrid
