As a member of the ZNE Design Team I get to participate in a cool program called See It Say It Saturday where we are invited to choose another member's art work and create a response to that.
I have long enjoyed the work of the woman whose work I chose. She's the kind of person who makes you proud to be human and she is a talented artist. I feel this is a great opportunity to acknowledge, Ana Maria "Ria" Seaton for her great work in the art community and her philanthropic efforts nation wide.
I came across this piece by Ria and I was immediately in love with it. My life is filled with Geminis... no really... my little girl, my husband, my mom and my brother. I also have several friends whose birthdays also fall into the Gemini phase of the zodiac. The Gemini sign is ruled by Mercury... the Messenger... who is typically depicted as having wings on his feet... what does all of that mean?
Well, let's just say that this particular piece, by Ria, reminds me of them...
Here is my response in assemblage... my poor family... they really live with a woman who will alter anything that isn't nailed down... these WERE my daughter's shoes!
