My Travelling Trees

Misted: Digital collage (c) 2010 Liz Ruest.Another of my trees is off on a trip. Last year, it was Norway. This year, again with a Twitter call for charitable donations, it’s Scotland! Trevor Jones, a Canadian artist who’s found a home in Edinburgh, called for art donations for the Trees for Life charity, whose goal is to replenish the Caledonian forest.

With Trevor’s encouragement, I produced a limited edition of ten 6×9″ prints of Misted at mpix.com, using their fabulous metallic paper. I’m normally a fan of matte, but this paper makes the art look like it’s glowing from within, matching my vision for these digital pieces.

Each print is numbered and signed, and now #4 is off on its trip across the ocean. I would love to be going with it: Scotland is at the top of my list for travel destinations. I was thinking about next summer, but maybe, just maybe, I should think about November, when the exhibition is up…?  In the meantime, see all the contributions here, and my piece in particular here. Yet another great example of the community on Twitter!

    Yes! We managed a weekend visit, with big help from a friend with pull at the airlines. Couldn’t quite swing the opening reception, what with flying standby, but did manage to connect with Trevor, who was kind enough to show us round the exhibit. How great to meet a fellow Canadian, see some fabulous art, and tour a great city!

    Update: a grove of trees have been planted in Trevor’s honor — one for each of the artists that contributed! How awesome is that?
