I have been working on a grant proposal. While I would love to be chosen, I am not even crossing my fingers. Regardless of the outcome, I am THRILLED with the project and I will be refining my vision over the coming months.
I envision large abstract landscape inspired painting situated IN the landscape.
These will be accompanied by an empty frame inviting the viewer to see abstraction in the landscape inspired by seeing the landscape in abstraction.
Art with a side of covert art education!
I am thinking of five to ten paintings along park trails, hiking, biking, or maybe even horse trails. If permission is slow coming then pop-up installations on Sunday afternoons at parks where families gather in the spring and fall.
Each painting will be accompanied by a frame. A perfect place for a selfie AND and an opportunity to look through the frame and be inspired to discover the abstract qualities within nature.

Who knows what will become of my grant proposal, but I will find a way to make it happen.
The next time you take a hike or a bicycle ride or saddle up, please keep your eyes open and we will find the perfect venue for the FRAMING NATURE art installation.
Peace and freedom, Gwen!
PS I Know all these photos are of the same painting but it was hard hauling this one out to the woods.
