Pin of Art 2011

It's that time of year again — The Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Utah are holding another Pin of Art auction benefiting their wonderful organization. For those that don't know, they auction off retired bowling pins that have been painted and decorated by several artists from across the country. All the proceeds for this auction go directly to BBBS of Utah.
I outdid myself this year with my entry "The Art of Adoration." It took me the better part of my spare time in February to make it and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out.
If you are interested in bidding on it or any of the other pins up for auction, go here to find out more about each one. The auction starts on them today (March 11) and concludes March 18. Good luck and happy bidding!
Here are several shots of my bowling pin, featuring a love struck robot wooing a space cadet with his artwork. My apologies, I didn't do a lot of behind the scenes photos for it, but if you'd like to learn about my process check out my blog entry about last years piece.

I did the Space Cadet's arms out of Sculpey and the Robot's arms out of dowel rods and PVC pipe connectors.
