Like most of us the devastating tragedy happening in Japan really affected me. But I was facing so many "choices" how I could participe financially with so many organizations and so many associations to give money t, that it kind a like "paralized" me.
Until two days ago when I got a message regarding "The Charity Exhibition" called "Pray for Japan" organized in conjunction with "Les editions du Jeu de Paumes" and their art gallery called "Doux dimanches".
I started working on a new mini-serie called "We are all connected". I decided to make an original artwork on heavy-weight paper. First I used the screen I made form my original drawing and then stamped my own design stamp "the love chair". I hand stamped the sentence :: WE ARE ONE.
The only requirement besides the art size was to try to incorporate a heart somewhere in the artwork. I decided to carve mine out of the balloon/Japan flag symbolism.
I am about to go to the post office to mail it to Japan.
It makes me feel connected to know than within a week my little piece will be in Japan among hundreds of other artists and that t
