i made this for a school assignment. felt and love

here's a flyer i made for an upcoming show i'm excited about. the second picture is the way the clouds looked before i ironed them down. i kinda like them better that way but oh well. it's a good idea for next time

after the mad rush last weekend to get things done for the show, i decided to take a much needed break. but i'm back now and it feels great! i went to michael's to get wood for more books, and i almost didn't get this box because i was sure it would just sit on my desk and never get painted. but i surprised myself and started this painting that night.

i love painting old men. i always fall in love with them. i'm madly in love with the one in the top hat. the one in the lower right hand corner is my second choice. these men are from hamburg.

these i made at the very last minute, the night before the craft fair. the drawings of the horse and cowgirl i copied from a book. and the monster drawing was done by one of the kids at the summer camp i worked at. but i painted them myself.
i LOVED these, i thought they were so great. but none of them sold, sadly.
i did do pretty well though. i sold quite a bit, made some money and met some nice people. a lot of my friends came to visit and say hi which was really cool and my mom and step dad came and bought me food and coffee and kept me company. it was a long day, and really really hot! all of the smaller wooden books sold with the exception of the two pictured here. i want to start selling things at the art walk next month. and my goal will be to get into the LA bizarre bazarre or felt club. although i looked at the application for the SF bizarre bazaar today and the entry fee was $120. too steep for me!

my sister finally put these up in the baby's room. i'm pretty happy with the way they look
