069. (body parts series, part two)

this is sharon's piece. baby lungs, acrylic, copyright catherine palmeno 2008.
sharon's always had allergies and problems breathing, so this painting is focusing on her problems. i did it in a style that she would enjoy. with each of these pieces, i'm executing them in ways that the receiver would like. these are my odes to them.

this is the start of amanda's:

i will tell you more about it later.

i just finished some pro-bono work for the women's center in waukesha. they were a pleasure to work with, and a totally awesome cause.

the inside of the invites are really subtle, and feminine. all and all, i'm happy with them.
