Head in a Box

Several months ago a box arrived at my apartment.  When I opened the box a styrofoam head was staring up at me.  

Very odd.

I double checked the address.  It was definitely addressed to me.

I checked the sender.  It was a name I recognized and so I sent her an e-mail:

Hey Barb:

I hope we're not re-enacting a scene from the Godfather, but I got a head in a box from you.  Am I supposed to be doing something with it? :)

She wrote back in the affirmative, jogging my memory about a conversation we had had at CHA.  Barb is the owner of Bizzy B -- a great scrapbooking, stamping, and mixed media store in Toronto, Canada.  And she is running a charity auction to benefit a Toronto-area high school art program.  She sent heads out to loads of artists and they are going to be auctioned off in the store (Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap, 2100 Bloor Street West, Unit 4, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1M7) starting on May 25.  The silent auction runs through June 3.

Here is my head:

I had a really good time working on this strange and unusual surface.  Very happy with the results and a little sad to see it heading out the door!

You can see all the heads here.  I have to say that the photo of my head on that page is not of her "good side."  But c'est la vie.  If you live in the Toronto area, consider stopping by the store to make a bid!

Thanks for stopping by!
