Inspiration / About the Art: I chose a collection of marbles to portray this number, because 50 is a common milestone, and marbles are beautiful stones. In honor of the original 100 pennies in the Penny Experiment, there are 100 marbles in this piece. Each one is unique, and each offers its own special contribution to the group. Much like people: each of us is unique, and each offers something special to the group.

Significance of the Number: The number 50 was chosen for personal reasons. I will reluctantly turn 50 soon, and am struggling with the usual mid-life uncertainty. But, participating in the Penny Experiment has given me confidence and a new sense of purpose. I am so glad to be part of this project!

Materials: Colored Pencil

Size: 5 inches x 5 inches

    Awesome drawing – captures the marbles’ story prefectly. It reminds me of fond times spend playing marble games with my sister and cousins at a cottage on a lake.
