Well, now I know. Mr. Henry V is nesting!!!These are finds in my sketch book. I tend to sketch and/or doodle in the evenings while watching mundane things on TV (or the news that lately hasn't been all that mundane!) I may have blogged this one already, it was for the last Big Draw, but when I saw it I couldn't even recall drawing it let along posting it. so here it is (again, maybe?)... Enjoy your weekend, what are your plans?

Guilty Cat; sketch book finds and Ready for Show Not necessarily In That Order
I am ready to take these to the art gallery tomorrow to enter them in the new show called: Reflections. I have put the two art pieces in shadow boxes. I really like this look. It seems to make the art stand out and gives it protection at the same time behind glass without the glass being flat on the fabric. On Boy With Red Lips I glued the words around the 5 X 7 inch frame of the box as seen here: Hard Times is in a 16" X 20" shadow box and I've added letter beads to spell out Hard Times and some green weird stuff that I burnt in place with my iron (another garage sale find last summer.) This piece is made of all recycled materials, and fabric paper I made with glue and water. It really shows how I am feeling now in our economic crisis. Has it hit home for you yet?This is my very GUILTY CAT...I was wondering why I kept finding the fabrics in this cupboard poured out onto the floor? Was the door not staying shut? Did I not have them pushed in there firmly enough?
