Just sent off my entry for TAE 19 (Twitter Art Exhibit 2019).
This year it’s being held in Edinburgh and to raise money for Art in Healthcare, Edinburgh, which is an organisation working closely with healthcare providers in hospitals, GP surgeries, community care groups, hospices, healthcare centres and other bodies involved in the provision of healthcare. The charity runs carefully tailored art workshops throughout the year and has a large collection of contemporary artwork, displayed in healthcare premises across Scotland. Funds raised by TAE19 will enable the charity to extend its workshop programme, the aim of which is to bring the power of creativity to people in times of need.
My contribution to TAE19 is this postcard-sized (6″x4″/16x12cms) eco print on watercolour paper – Windfall – I made last year and have been letting mature in a drawer; mature meaning put it aside for a while to ensure the permanence of the colours. I achieved the print using eucalyptus, bramble, St John’s Wort leaves and elm catkins. Appropriate to the health theme, all the plant matter has medicinal properties.
It will be on sale for £30 at the:
