In July 2014 I created the artwork above in response to the Documented Life Project Week 29 Challenge of “Make a wish list – draw pictures or cut out images from magazines.”
I didn’t disclose my actual wishes at the time but they were – to find a new dog, to make money from my art, to win a SAA gold medal with my chorus and to be able draw freehand faces. The draw faces wish was completed on the actual page, I have sold many artworks since then and last weekend my chorus, A Cappella West, won the gold medal in the SAA National barbershop competition. So wishin’ and hopin’ does seem to work! Am guessing a dog is coming my way real soon!
