My art-quilting friend, Cathy Jeffers asked a few of us to participate in a fund raiser for breast cancer awareness. Bricks Along the Journey is an annual art auction in Cincinnati, Ohio, that raises funds for Breast Cancer Research, Education and Awareness. Artists from all over the area create art on bricks which are then auctioned on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Of course, my little brick was asking for a Zentangle kind of dressing, so here it is. I had lots of fun with this. I applied gesso to the brick, then used a Sharpie Paint marker to tangle it. I painted the pink in acrylics, and the shaded with a wash of black acrylic. It was then varnished. I love my little brick and hope that someone else will love it enough to bid on it. Thanks, Cathy, for supplying us with bricks AND inspiration!
