Arizona artist Edna Harris' goal is to combine various media in order to create a world of potential, interpretation and most of all, fun.
Edna combines watercolor with found objects and embellishments. There is a recurring object in her work: candy wrappers (www.candywrappercreations.com). Each painting has a theme and hopefully each viewer will have a little different interpretation of the meaning. A "key" may represent the meaning of the piece and the candy wrappers add a touch of whimsy everyone can enjoy. Beginning with an original watercolor piece, she may dismantle it and rearrange the pieces into a new design. From there words or phrases, embellishments and candy wrappers will be added until the final effect is reached.
You can see Edna's art October 26-28, as she will be a featured artist at the Harvest Festival Original Art & Craft Show, at the Phoenix Convention Center. Visit www.harvestfestival.com for more information.
