Sixteen friends got together to do a group birthday gift for our friend Holly. We got together late last year to have wine and dessert (natch) and to throw around a few ideas as to what we should do. We decided on each of us completing a 3" x 5" canvas. I decided to paint Oreo, one of my cats with whom Holly has a special bond.
Several months later, the group met again and this time we brought our completed canvases.
We put them together with velcro tabs attached to long ribbons hung from a wooden dowel.
It came together beautifully...
The miniature works of art were wonderful, each recalling a special moment each artist shared with Holly.
...and here is the final piece of work, hanging in Holly's screened-in porch, where she can enjoy it while sipping on her morning tea.
