ROSE MAILBOX
Julie Cochrane, O.S.C.I.
The rose was the first thing that caught my eye when Julie saw one of Donna Dewberry’s books in Wal-Mart. She bought the book, practiced a lot and from then on, was hooked. Roses became her favorite subject to paint. Julie went on to become certified in April of 2002 and is currently working on a lesson plan to teach others an easy way to practice. This mailbox is one example of the
many items on which she has painted roses. You may contact Julie for more information at:

ROSE PAPER MACHE BOX
Angela Borden, O.S.C.I.
Angela says her students love roses, and since this box is full of them, it gave them plenty of opportunity to practice painting roses. After using this box for teaching, Angela filled it with iridescent grass and placed a painted soap, candles, ornament and votive inside and sold it at a craft fair.

KAREN’S ROSE
Amber Hall, O.S.C.I.
Amber designed this rose for Karen Marshall, OSCI shortly after learning that Karen was ill. This is a scan of the actual card. "Karen's Rose was my humble effort to try to offer support, cheer and sisterhood to Karen Marshall after her breast cancer diagnosis. It also led to a formal Design Sheet that many artists have purchased and I hope they too have been inspired to brighten other lives because of Karen's Rose," Amber said. You may contact Amber at:

SNOWMEN UNITED
Angela Borden, O.S.C.I.
This sled holds a lot of meaning for Angela as it was created on a day she was thinking about September 11th. She wanted to paint something that would reflect how we as Americans are bound together. The snowman holding each other up represents helping hands and the colors of their scarves and hats represent the colors of the American Flag. The top snowman holding the American flag represents our pride in America and the scroll with "USA" on it represents the Constitution of the United States. The words, "United We Stand" represents how we as Americans felt after September 11th and the "Peace on Earth" at the bottom is how we feel today. You may contact Angela for more information at:
