Canvas Project

Remember when I posted about my entry into the Canvas Project?

Hundreds of tiny canvas entries each painting their visual image of a word.

They covered the walls of the art gallery with the canvases in Brooklyn!
I wish I could have seen the walls of the Sketchbook Gallery
with the Canvas Project’s canvases covering them.
My canvas is in the top right corner…

I got Jodi Scaltreto’s fish “SMELT” and she got my image of
Yaman doing “BEDLAM” — how cool is that?
I found out she is a quilter… by the name of Jodibird!

However, I am disappointed in the book images.
They look a bit like someone did them on an old copier.
If the blues had been “off” that would not have bothered me,
but the colors are faded and grey, as if no one bothered to do a publication check.
As we pay for the books, can’t say I’d do that again…
And sorry, every one is not saying this, but they are all thinking it…
It is the worst art publication I’ve ever seen.

    That’s so cool! I love it.


  2. Yikes! The reproduction of the images really is pretty crappy. I can tell even from your photographs that the colours are completely inaccurate. I almost participated in this project but could not afford it at the time. Now I admit to being slightly relieved I didn’t. I love both the image you created and the one you received. At least that and the act of participating is something of value.


I love hearing from visitors!
