HEART IN SF PROJECT
Silenced Voices of Everyday Sheroes on a San Francisco Heart
I am thrilled to have been awarded a commission to paint a heart sculpture for the SF General Hospital Foundation’s 2019 Hearts in San Francisco project. The committee selected Silenced Voices of Everyday Sheroes to be painted on the heart. This project has been tons of work to make it to the deadline, but I have also enjoyed it greatly and feel honored to have been able to work on it, not to mention that it is for a great cause!
The Heart Sculptures play a lead role in the Foundation’s Annual Fundraiser Events held in February of each year. They are auctioned to raise funds for the Foundation. This year there will be eight large heart sculptures. Each heart is 5 feet tall x 6 feet wide x 40 inches depth and 400 pounds.
Update: I am happy to announce that the heart sold before the auctioned opened!
Working on the Heart
Or better said... garage visits! The only place I could fit a 400-pound heart was in our garage. I haven't used it as a workspace before, but I have to say I really loved it. We had a pretty tight neighborhood community already, but working with the doors open had lots of people stop by, and I had the chance to meet and chat with a lot of new neighbors. It was a great experience. And of course, it was lovely to have old friends come by too.
