Hello everyone! I finished up the pieces that you saw in progress last week, and wanted to share some pictures of them. Here is the Americana Monkey........
I think he may need a little hat though after looking at him for a couple of days, so I will be adding that before he is listed on the AFA site. Here is a close up of his face and his hand holding the old silver cup. I searched and searched at my local monthly antique faire for just the perfect sized cup, and finally found it at the end of the day! It is engraved with the word Petersburg, and has a lovely ornate little carved handle. Here is the little piece you saw mounted to the old child's block.... I named it Spirit of 1776 and it went to a new home on Sunday.This piece is the one I made for PFATT'S Halloween in June party....and she too is on her way to a new home. Don't forget to stop by if you haven't already, and enter your name in the drawing while you're there! There are some wonderful prizes donated by the artists, and you could be a lucky winner!This is the last piece that you saw in progress last week.....I call him "Hooray" Moon. I really love the way he turned out! He will be available for purchase on AFA soon. Speaking of AFA, we will be having an Americana theme update on June 25th, so check the site at noon that day to see all of the wonderful Americana folk art available for purchase!
I am asking you all to please keep Brianna in your thoughts and prayers today. There were some complications last night, and she is fighting right now, and she and her family could use all of the positive thoughts and prayers they can get. If you do not know of her story, please read Iva's blog and leave a comment of support. Thank you!
I will be back soon with pictures from my first show of 2007 which was on this past Sunday. We had a wonderful time and the weather was beautiful!
Until next time, I wish you all a wonderful week! :)
