I was super excited to be chosen as one of the artists to paint a pedestal for display on Hillsborough street. Though I was already super busy this summer with teaching and the turnaround time in this was very short I gladly took on the project. The subject matter for the art was open- so I was able to just paint what I wanted which took the stress out. I went with magical mythical trees, enigmatic architecture, birds and human birds naturally.
I had a lot of fun painting this and spent time in my studio even though typically I don’t get to paint as much in the summers. It is now installed on Hillsborough street and I plan to walk by and see it in person this evening! My husband, Keith Norval, also did one.
My art’s new home-
