Art from the Heart is a new artistic endeavor devoted to showcasing art dedicated to changing the course of our world. Art that is designed to "bring attention tothe growing problems of hatred and violence in the United States, as well as the need for peace and nonviolence on the planet" is the focus of this online exhibit.
I am delighted to announce that my piece, "One World, One Heart, No Hate" has been chosen to be part of this exhibit.
This is a detail of "One World, One Heart, No Hate"
I painted the earth on cotton with acrylic paints.
I cut it out, cut it in half, and fused it to a heart cut out of some of my shibori-dyed fabric.
Of course, the best part is near the middle of the piece.
I created the wings from cotton with batting.
The background is some commercial fabric I had that looks like a starry night sky to me.
