I am deeply honored that Survivor - a "kintsugi" portrait - took first place in the statewide juried Art Hop in Georgetown, Texas. It is part of a series of warriors who are stronger because of the injuries/adversity/illness/racism they've endured. I use gold metal leaf to "mend" her scar. This is dedicated all the warriors out there who are fighting cancer or other life-threatening diseases.
These are the pieces included in the Art Hop, which runs until October 27, 2017.
