This is so long overdue...it's about my Wonder Woman angels that I made for a special #AngelDropART. Long story short- I invited folks to comment on a post on my FB art page to nominate a lady that they feel is WONDERful and give a comment or two to explain why. It went with my #WONDERfulWomenJLG art series from November 2017.
So anyway, that post was back in December. I started them all and then they were put on the back burner as I worked on my daily art and other projects, prepped for an Art Show and traveled back home...and dealt with the death of our little cat, Scooter- which really hit hard. After I came back from the holidays it was back to work, time for a new series...more time to grieve...and time just kept passing. And the angels just waited.
But no mas. Checking this OFF that ever-expanding to-do list.
In the past few weeks I have been finishing the actual painting of the angels, just anytime I had a chance. Then my next challenge was contacting everyone to get the addresses- that took a while. I decided that I would mail the angels to the folks that did the NOMINATING. I attached a little note for the nominator, sep paper(s) for them to write a personal message to the recepient(s)
The nominators can choose to give them to the 'WONDERful Women' in person of via mail.
And today...I mailed the angels off.
I should have saved my original lists...but from what I can remember the angels will be heading out to places here in Florida, back home to North Carolina...and also California, Delaware, Massachusetts...and I even mailed one off to ENGLAND!!!
But that's not all- I also mailed off packages to two folks from Project Runway All Stars- Merline and Ken. I decided a while back that I would contact the designers who created the pieces that I sketched each week, and if they wanted the art I would send it. It really made me excited last season of Project Runway to send art to Kenya, to see her reaction and to just give her a gift for being such an inspiration...so hopefully I will hear back from some of the other designers to send them the illustrations from this season.
