Title: Many Hands Make ‘Light’ Work

Dream Theme: Community Work

What is your artwork about? 
In a tribute to community, work, and cooperation that make great goal and worthwhile project possible, I wanted to create an image of many hands at work and a resulting attitude of great thanksgiving. Using my late mother’s leather gloves from 1950’s to create this collage; I was in a constant contemplation of her long-term, commitment to the common good. Many hands and deeds make goals, achievements, and ennoblement a reality for humanity. Through this art project we can decorate and celebrate a rocket as it reaches for the stars.
