Sing For Hope Piano - It Begins!

As some of you may know, I submitted a proposal to be one of the artists for Sing For Hope's annual Sing for Hope Piano Project and I was accepted!!!  I am essentially creating a bas-relief on the piano using plaster and papier-mache casts of a whole bunch of people from all over NYC.  Aiming for a 3D variation of my Black & White and Color work on a  PIANO :)  So exciting!

Last week was my first week in the piano studio working on my piano.  Here is a pic of me & my piano at he beginning aka the BEFORE PICTURE:

I mentioned I'm casting a lot of people right?  This includes some fabulous young people from Still Waters in a Storm. Check out some pics from our casting session:

Fun right?!?!

So I went straight from that casting session to the piano studio.  So then the piano looked like this:

And then like this:

Then this:

Then it was late  and I had to leave.  But I went back the next night and did this:

Piano_Arm & 3 faces copy

Then I thought I should work on the back a bit:

Then I realized I needed more/different body part casts.  So I'm throwing a plastering part this weekend.  Stay tuned for updates :)

Enjoy your weekend!
