At last I have some time after a couple busy weeks to get back to some “serious” painting.
Here’s another fabric design for the latest Spoonflower Design challenge. As the theme is Birds & blossoms, and my sister, who’s in Japan on a teaching gig, has been posting delectable images of the Cherry Blossom trees there, I knew what must be done. Voting begins today, so go on and vote for your favorites here.
|Cherry blossoms, y’all.|
When I was a kid, my friends and I used to have collections of cheap china animal figurines from the drugstore (or as Grandma called it, the “Dime Store”). Sometimes dogs, sometimes horses. In my little crowd, you were either a dog or horse person, and your statues reflected your preference. It seems the girly-girls were all horse people, and the tomboys were dog people. I was a dog person, Kelly was a horse person, Anne a dog person, and boy was Jeannie a horse person. The figurines sometimes sat on a shelf, but mostly they were trotted around on the floor, horses and dogs rearing up and saying hello. Consequently, their legs and tails were always being broken off. But we were handy with our Elmer’s, so most recovered nicely!
