This month I’m participating in an art show with the American Greetings Lettering Trend Group. The show features art we created on ping pong paddles along with our traditional framed artwork.
The first paddle I made features a bird theme which follows the theme of my traditional artwork, bird drawings. The paddle is painted to resemble a gourd type of bird house and includes a popular phrase; “Birds of a feather flock together.”
The second paddle includes a Celtic design and a twist on the “Old Irish Blessing.” I modified the blessing and named this piece the “New Tournament Blessing.” This paddle follows the theme of the framed artwork, “Old Irish Blessing” that’s also on display.
The Lettering Trend Group’s members come from many different backgrounds and the artwork reflects the diversity among us. It was exciting to work on this project and then set it up in the gallery together. The show runs June 2 through June 13, in the American Greetings Creative Gallery.
