Last Saturday Mary Beth and I met my mom out in O'Fallon to pick up doors for the Habitat for Humanity Door Project. The project was called to our attention through Evie Shucart and the Women's Caucus for the Arts. The idea is that we artists will paint a door for auction at the St. Charles Home show and the proceeds will benefit the Habitat for Humanity. My door is still sitting in the garage, but I plan to tackle it next week. I am so excited to get started. Here is a link to the video that Susan Weich from STL Today made and an article she wrote. I tried to figure out how to put the video in my post but it wouldn't work for some reason. I am the big dork in the red coat who didn't realize we were being videoed for a newspaper article. Maybe I should have paid better attention.
I can't wait to get started. My ideas keep bouncing from purely decorative, to something for a kids room, to something realistic and pretty. No matter what I know it will be a rewarding experience. I just hope someone bids on it!!!
