so rarely do my husband and I collaborate and it not end in almost divorce, but this time we had our own separate parts… and we survived. picasso’s coffeehouse commissioned us to do curtains for their front room. i sewed eight coffee sacks together with ties and michael painted some retro-style coffee pictures on them. they turned out great and they look pretty cool.

so that’s it for now, i still need to take pictures of this year’s art show pieces…

Some of the pieces are still for sale, but i can let go of them… maybe.

a whole lot of freakin’ dots…

i finally finished the house portrait of my aunts office. i decided to scratch the one i started with charcoal and to do something a little more my style, like pen and ink on papyrus. i would like to think that when someone saw this that it didn’t look like a typical portrait. i exaggerated some of the lines to make it feel a little off/ or expanding. well this pictures makes it look alot more exaggerated. so i’m off to finish another project. I made a bag to carry my drawing board and pads for school. it’s huge and beautiful. since i walk about ten blocks to and from school and my drawing class is another four blocks from school, i had to find some sort of comfortable way to tote everything… and looking spiffy came to mind as well. i’ll post a picture soon.
