Now for what the well-dressed frog will wear. The frog doll was a bargain bin find at Ikea. Her little dress was ripped so I made her new clothing. What do you mean, how do I know it's a girl frog?
Finally, here is a mess of small pictures; a couple of paintings and some icon/collages.
I love doing the work getting ready for shows, but I detest the transporting and setting up. It is a royal pain.
However, there is no gain without some pain. Last year I sold a few collages and a couple of paintings but ran right out of Birbies and hats. Who knows what the going thing will be this year or if there will be any disposable income out there earmarked for original design and hand-making? We shall see. In the meantime I keep working away.
There are a number of things in the works now. The painting muse has been nagging me so it will soon be time to haul out the canvases, tarps, and paint. In addition, there are hip belts and Turkish vests to make and embellish for dance classes.
The table in the living room that I use to hold whatever I am working on is starting to get that cluttered and chaotic look. It's time to finish a few things before I begin another, but I always get a great idea when I'm working on something else!
