Coming soon - My Valentine Project 2016

Greetings from Eddyville -

The 22nd annual Valentine for Aids silent art auction is coming up soon, sponsored by the Flying M coffee shop in Boise. The auction benefits SNAP (Safety Net for AIDS), a program that provides assistance for housing, utilities, groceries and medical insurance to clients living with HIV/AIDS. Last year the event raised more than $24,000. For more info

About 250 local artists are expected to donate to the auction. I have participated throughout the years whenever possible...and this is one of those years.

And here are some of the items and inspiration I will be using for my project this year. Yep, turning this thrift store boot, wire, beads and tattoos into a work of art will take quite a bit of creativity.

I plan to document my progress and film an "Alive at Eddyville" video on how the project was constructed and some of the techniques I used.

Here are several of the items I have donated in past years.

"Purple Heart"
"Love Lite"
"Unchain My Heart"

The deadline to submit the project is Jan. 31 so I'd better get busy.

Stay tuned...
