My Art Box at Corner of Mills and Nebraska

Mills 50 project

Still needs details

"What have you done this Summer?" is a big question with teachers.  This year is no different.  But for me what I did is very different.  The local business association Mills 50 held a contest for decorating the electric boxes at the traffic signals in the area.  I was lucky to be one of those chosen.  The hard part was the summer sun, working between thunder storms and never being satisfied with my own work.  However my art journaling and mixed media jumped off the sketchbook page and is now on display at the corner of Mills and Nebraska.

Lots of layers, getting down to details.
