It was with much gratitude that I was asked to be a part of a special
Art Exhibition honoring a local artist and
friend who died last summer.
This weekend the home of artist Jim Julin who died suddenly last year
after a short illness was filled to the brim with artists and their artwork
celebrating Jim's life as an artist, craftsmen and friend.
I created the drawing and poem 'A Giant Fell Today' just a few days after Jim died last year as a way to express what I was feeling at the time. When I learned of the 'Jim Show' being put together in his memory this summer I knew that this is what I was to contribute.
The pieces were placed in a shadow box and pinned
bulletin board style as a tribute to a man with a generous spirit.
Garment made from several pairs of Jim's jeans as a gift to his sister.
A pine tree that Jim planted becomes part of the show.
Several pieces of Jim's work were included.
Every piece in the show was created with Jim's creative spirit in mind.
