Hearts in San Francisco

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.
In February there will be a fundraiser luncheon in  AT&T Park where the hearts will be auctioned off to raise money for the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. You can read all about the hearts and event on the press release here (PDF). You can also find out more about the event on their website http://www.sfghfoundation.net/hh/hearts_and_artists.html
