Let is Snow, Let is Snow, Let it Snow

I have been having so much fun creating Christmas and winter themed work. I just love this little snowman. He is 6"x6", currently framed, and sitting in the window of Dana's Showhouse on Bainbridge. The artists from the Bainbridge Studio Tour have a display to promote the tour the first weekend of December. I will be there at the American Legion Hall. This is the first year I have participated and I'm really excited. I feel a bit out of my league with all the "real" artists . As for the group I'm with, I'm the youngest by at least 10 years. One even led my kindergarten class in a ceramics project when I was 6. I didn't mention this to him though because I didn't want to make him feel old. It should be a good experience and hopefully I will learn a few things from the people who have been there and done it.

These are mini 2"x3" quilts, mounted on 4x6 cards made from watercolor paper. There is so much different imagery that I've gone a little crazy. I'm obsessive, I know. At least I have different cards to post for every day between now and Christmas if I'm organized enough to photograph them.

Turkeys, Turkeys Everywhere

The kids have working on all kinds of turkey are in preparation for Thanksgiving coming up at school. I just couldn't resist the temptation to join in on the fun. I created 7 different Turkey cards. I list a few in my Etsy shop and I think I will use the others for Thank You cards. I want to send something special out to the people who have really supported me this last year. I figure Thanksgiving would be the perfect time to get organized and do it.
