I also trimmed the tunes out with some equally rockin' trim and used a gorgeous yellow lace, both from that crazy haul. For the first time ever, I made my 5x5 way before it was due and hung it up in my workspace for a bit. It was then that any doubts about the piece disappeared and I fell in love with the way it hung. Especially the way that trim dangles below. In fact, if this one doesn't sell at the fundraiser, I may very well buy it back!
For the first time in, maybe, forever, the 5x5 opening will NOT be on May 5th. Instead, this year, the opening will be THIS Friday, May 2nd at 5:55 and will coincide with First Friday Art Crawl. Every single 5x5 (there are hundreds!) are for sale for $55. After that, the pieces can be viewed and purchased during normal gallery hours. Do check them out! It's a fun show. You can see my previous three contributions here, here and here.
