Got back from Phoenix ready to get things in order for entries in this years Texas State Fair.
I entered my Artist Interpretation of Frida and my painting of Porkchop at the fair.
Found out that Porkchop didn't place, but "Frida" won First Place!

Hi All!
I returned from a wonderful week in Phoenix refreshed and ready for new creative endeavors.
This years Art Unraveled Extravaganza was just that an extravaganza! The show floor was filled with new items for multi-media artists plus a few goodies already made for us collectors. I tried to take as many pictures as I could to show you the wonderful show but crowds just wouldn't allow it. Take my word for it it was wonderful. Classes seemed to be full and students strutted in their aprons shopping every chance they got. If you missed the 15th annual event add it to your check list as a must for the coming year.
Thank you Chuck and Linda for the 15 years of putting on a great event and show. Thank you to their staff and hotel staff for all your help as well.
Below are some of the pictures of artists and people selling their wares. Not all though as it was difficult. If you see something you like and need to have please contact the person directly.

It is almost time for this years Art Unraveled in Phoenix Arizona! As I make the last preparations of my trip to Phoenix, I wanted to share with you some of the pieces that willl be going with me.
Two of the dolls are from a series I call, "Walking By Faith and Not By Sight." They are smaller than my other pieces but they pack a large amount of character and cuteness!
Another of my new dolls is "Jemeana." If you remember she is from a series of ethnic dolls I have made and of which have all found homes.
"Frida" is this years Art Frida doll. I have made myself create a new Frida every year.
My Catrina/Day of the Dead dolls will make their debut at this years show as well. They have been very popular at other shows.
You will also see some of my Halloween themed dolls.
I have plans for my table and I guarantee it will stand out among the other artists exhibiting. I am sure this will be a fun show filled with lots of art and artist creativity, please come and join us for the Art Extravaganza!

Till next time!

Hi All!
I have been away from my blog for soooo long and I was missing it. It seems that more people are interested in face book and other media that have forgotten about blogs. I myself have missed blogging, and sharing adventures with pictures for sometime, but just couldn't get myself to starting. Well I am back!
As it so happens today is Frida Day, her birthday. I think it's the 106th so we might as well stop counting, right? I had been thinking and looking through my photos and noticed I have made quite a few Frida interpretations in my time.  All of them have gone to new homes except my last one from 2016 and the future one I am working on.
Frida has been an inspiration not only to me but to most artists all over the world. I have come across people form different places outside of the US and when they see one on my table at shows they automatically know who she is. It's amazing!
Till next time!

Had fun sketching and painting.
