29a) Fond of the Family Farm-Nichole Tichota

Patron: Wayne’s Body Shop

The art on this heart truly comes from mine!  The barn image is that from my family’s farm which we sold a couple years ago when my parents retired. I spent many a day working, playing and daydreaming in this barn.  I know that someday it may no longer exist, so I wanted to capture its image, permanently, for others to also enjoy.

Realizing that this art heart will be displayed for the public, I wanted to create something that they could fully interact with. Knowing the popularity of coloring books, I chose to create something similar with a dry erase finish so people viewing can also engage in artistic expression by coloring the landscape with dry erase markers (which I intend to furnish along with the piece, if chosen.)
