Camas on a stick anyone? This is a sneak peak of my current concept for the Art in Rural Storefronts Project for Halsey Oregon. The above model has received limited hours of work, has no finished color, and a very quick assembly. Very quick!! It’s been constructed strictly to see if my ideas are feasible and they are!!! The piece is only about 20″ ( 46 cm) tall (from the bottom petal to the top flower bud) which is about 1/3 the expected finished size. Plus there will be multiple stalks of camas. Eventually the viewers will be looking through a” field” of giant camas. Kind of like when you’re a kid laying down in grassy fields, taking a bugs eye view of the world. Adults never seem to do that anymore. 🙂
For the backdrop, I’ll be using recycled interior doors. They will be linked together with a loose charcoal landscape drawing over the surface. Still working on a title for the piece.
