Thank You

Please Vote for Spring Fever!!!

I have submitted!!! And now that I’ve done my part, it’s time for you to do yours!!! What have I submitted for? Good question… so here is a little explanation: John Fluevog recently put out a call to their fans to submit a design for their spring campaign. And if you know me at all, you know that I love a challenge and I love shoes so I had no choice but to create a piece to submit. I have worn and collected Fluevog shoes since I was 13 years old; in fact, I still have a clear memory of the very first pair I bought, as well as every single pair I bought ever since.

Here is my piece!

Spring Fever by Laura Balducci

I called it “Spring Fever” and created it using acrylic paint, collage, and a hand-embroidered outline of their beautiful shoe Attic Bianca. So I am asking all my friends and followers for your help (yes I am being shameless) as there is a public vote happening. Please follow the link and vote by giving a “thumbs up” (hopefully for my design… winkwinkwink) You can vote once  and I would really appreciate a moment of your day and as many shares as you feel to make an artist and shoe lover’s dream come true! Thank you so very much from the bottom of my Fluevog heart! xoxo

Forever Home: continued

The Stuffy Collection just keeps on moving!!!

Mr. ILoveH2O has found his forever home in Victoria, BC! Now this makes me so happy because Mr.ILoveH2O was the very first stuffy I documented for the collection back in 2014. By now, the Stuffy Collection has gotten around and travelled around the Salish Sea and there are 27 left for adoption out of this unique yearlong 52-week art challenge I set out for myself. And quite a challenge it was! Spending a year doing one photo shoot with a different stuffy each week for inspiration and then creating one portrait a week and writing a short story for each of them was as much fun as it was a lot of work! But very rewarding nonetheless and it continues to be so. Mr. ILoveH2O has a great message to share considering the situation going on in the world and especially in the US and in Canada. Here is his story:

Mr.ILoveH2O knows that water is the most important thing on earth.”Without it nothing would survive!” he is fond of saying. And then he invariably adds: “It takes 460 gallons of water to grow on pound of chicken and 31 gallons of water for a single pound of potatoes!” Mr.ILoveH2O would like you to think about water every day.

Thank You for your ongoing support it means a lot to me and encourages me to keep creating. xoxo Laura
