spring bloom - monica lacey 2013
Today's image is of a felted flower that I made, inspired by the recent shift of seasons toward Spring here on PEI. I'm making them with the Senior Citizen's groups that I teach every week. They began by making the stems, thinking "what is this green stick for?" So this week when I brought them this completed flower as an example, they were excited to finish their own and became really inspired - it was great to see.

As I slowly prepare for my upcoming residency in North Carolina, I've been looking through past residents and their projects, and getting almost overwhelmed with inspiration! I'm feeling ready to move my studio practice to the next level, and shift toward doing larger work, and more installation work.  The last project I did that got me excited like this was comprised of video, photography, and sculpture, and was shown at the UNB Art Centre in 2012 - you can see the video portion of it here, and read my post about it here.

If you don't already know, I'm having an art sale/fundraising campaign to help with the cost of this residency.  If you've been really enjoying this photo-a-day project, contribute a mere 25$ and choose any photo from January 2013 to the present and I will send you a signed 8x10 print of it, gorgeously printed on 100% cotton archival fine art paper. It's an amazing deal! 

See Juliana's photo here & Minka's here. Also, check out this great photo project by Gabriele Galimberti.  Inspiring!
