California Dreamin' by Sandy Melory
Painted Silk and Embellished Textile (19" x 34" x 3")
"I am honored to be a member of Green Bay Art Colony, the legacy of which was to establish art in the community as a source of culture, expression, creativity and inspiration. My wearable art piece, California Dreamin', incorporates my hand-painted silk fabric design of The Bird of Paradise flower. This 'larger than life' flower symbolizes freedom and joy. It also embodies my belief that art is a joyful form of self expression, a valuable tool in teaching self-confidence, and a critical part of a vibrant community. May the legacy and freedom to create art in our daily lives continue to grow!"
