I am excited to finally be able to unveil my SF Heart for “Hearts in San Francisco”. I was one of eight artists chosen to create a large (5’ tall x 5’9” wide x 3’3” deep, 400 lbs) heart for San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. The plain white heart was delivered to my studio at the end of August and I was given 2 months to create it. The heart I created was inspired by the cyanotype photographic process. I created a faux cyanotype of wild California Poppies. This was one of the largest pieces I have ever worked on. It was a wonderful and challenging process that I really enjoyed. Below are a few pic but you can see a lot more of the whole process here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152044167111382.1073741834.133213886381&type=3.
