Here are the finished collages I wrote about a few weeks ago. To be honest, not much changed. A Victorian pansy scrap was added to the bottom of Julia to echo the color in her hat ribbon and her dress color was punched up with marker. There's more gold in Hope's her hair and on the sun, and a bit more shading all over.

The pieces will be for sale at the 4th annual Jamie Osher Memorial Fund Gala, 6-9 p.m. Thursday April 26 at Art Design Consultants, 310 Culvert St., downtown (behind the Taft Museum of Art). The fund was created by Jamie's wife, artist Paula Wiggins, to raise money for esophageal cancer research, education and outreach. It's the disease that Jamie died from in 2008.

Admission is $50. A few dozen Cincinnati artists have donated small works of art for the "Wall of Hope." Each piece will sell for $75.
