The Turtle continues with the embellishing of the fins. The next step will be to sew the back onto the fin and slide it in place on the armature.
At last, the Village of Batavia is out of the snow. And here is a pix of the first flower to spring forth in my yard. I've taken two days off from "Mermaid Work" to clear flower beds and play in the yard.
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. In fact, I loved the “art room” during my school days so much that I grew up to be an art teacher.
I received a Masters Degree from the College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. Which makes me a BEARCAT Fan!
I went on to spend 32.7 years in public school art education, the last 21 years in a middle school art room.
My current works of art include bead embellished art quilts, figurative art in cloth, mostly Mermaids, elaborate clothing and accessories.
