Art and Soul is a one night art show with 1/2 the proceeds of any art sold going to a local charity. This year it's Echo, the lake Champlain education center and I just finished 5 art quilts to hopefully be selected to enter in the show. Since I put my H(art) and soul into all my quilts, this show appealed to me. They need to have something to do with Echo's mission which is to educate people about the lake and the area around it. So here's what I came up with.
The waterfront near burlington, that little lighthouse is sort of a landmark down there.
Lake Champlain - camping is a great way to enjoy it
The lake again with a bear - we've had a lot of bear sightings around here lately
I know, this is not the ocean - it's Vermont! But did you know that just a few million years ago this area was covered by the ocean? And sea urchins were all over the place.
And my personal favorite - the sand dollar.
Wish me luck with the art and soul show and if that doesn't work out, I'll be putting in my etsy shop.
