An added bonus is that we all trade our pieces. So, I get to add a piece of artwork from some of my favorite artists to my own personal collection. Here are the three pieces that I mailed to their new homes yesterday. All cats. I wonder if that means anything.
My rip of a Sara Field piece is a fabric appliqué, quilted pillow stuffy. I have been a big fan of Sara Field ever since I found one of her Klimt pieces on eBay. I hope my rip does her work justice.
My rip for Elizabeth VanSickle is what I like to call a stuffed painting, all hand painted on muslin and stuffed. I really enjoyed creating this piece for Beth and wish her the best in health and happiness. I really love the Geisha she did for me! She is a very talented artist and I find her work especially inspiring.
My rip of S. Olga Linville is one of my non-traditional sock dollys. For a long time, I have been attracted to S. Olga Linville’s whimsical cat art. She is such a talented artist. I hope she enjoys her new doll.
