2012 Street banner unveiling

It's time again for this years Arts Alive banner unveiling. I can't wait to see all the new paintings this year!
I decided to paint a larger version of my "China Doll" lady which I'm hoping the color will really pop from the street post.
They asked the artists not to post their paintings till after the event, so I'll show you all later.
About 200-300 people are expected to walk through it! yikes!
If you want to miss the crowds and get great parking, show up after 3:30pm. Otherwise...I'll see you there. Karin

before and After--buffet table

I've been trying to sell this buffet with no luck for over a year. Finally, I gave in and took it home. Decided to paint it a warm gray giving it my custom "ship wreak" finish. Once it entered the Pannikin it was snatched up fast. So fast that they had a list a customers wanting to buy it if the original buyer changed his mind.
Why didn't I paint it sooner!?

I end this post with Bobby staring intently at this felted bird. If I don't get it away in time, he would gladly dismantle the whole thing. (Not sure if I posted this picture before? If so, sorry. It just cracks me up every time I see it.)

coming up......some new artwork, and yet another baby shower post. Wait till you see the theme of this shindig. Sooo cute!
