Windi Rosson, Owner/Artist of Winjimir Studio in Ga.
How did you find out about the Painted Bra Project and what made you want to participate?
I first found out about the Painted Bra Art Project last year, when fellow EBSQ artist Tracey Allyn Greene (Tag’s Cats) participated. But I had missed all the dead lines and vowed to submit work to it this year.
I wanted to do it, because there are many people in my life that have been affected by various forms of cancer, this was my way of being able to help out. Even if it is just a little bit, it’s all for a common goal and good cause…plus I got to figure out how paint on a bra.
Tell us a little about the bras you painted. Was there anything special you had to do to prepare them?
My “Moundnet” bra was treated with a few layers of fabric paste. Since I am an impressionist painter with a fondness of texture it was important that I be able to create that on the bra. The pink hues in the sky and the texture made me think of Monet, hence the name.
The “snowflake” bra was spray painted a few times until I figured out how to get the depth of color I wanted for the background and the snowflakes were created using a stencil from some left over scraps from a card making class I took, which coincidentally is taught by a cancer survivor.
I understand your bras were accepted into a juried online auction, how does that work for folks who’d like to bid?
At first the call was to submit BRA’sterpieces and 100 would be chosen for the auction. This year due to overwhelming response they ended up with about 200 BRA’sterpieces included in the auction. The online auction is held at ThePaintedBraProject.com and anyone can register to bid on items.
Here’s a link to my items: Windi Rosson Painted Bra Project
I have also donated an ArtSkrap™ Pendant and Earring set to the auction.
For those interested in participating maybe next year you can follow the Facebook page, or sign up for the email list on the website.
I would also like to ask that everyone reading this pass on the links to the auction, via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, blogs, email,….the more eyes this event gets in front of the better outcome for a great cause.
Thank you Windi and best of luck in the auction!
