Acrylic and latex paint
These signature Leah Joy Bee organic shapes were free handed during a large gathering. This piece was a last minute decision during a Destination Medical Center event. Originally, I had planned a design for a bamboo fence; then someone suggested this more permanent fixture. At the time, I was struggling with health problems; when I see this piece I am reminded of being rushed to into emergency surgery that evening. The shapes and colors are meant to incite joy and playful emotions, regardless of what I was struggling through.
