My new "Cat" dolls were fun and simple to make
after spending so much time on Oak Tree.
They are dressed in their Autumn colors and as ready for Fall as I am!
I may have gotten carried away on their tails and made them a little big
but they are fun.
A big thank you to each and everyone who made a comment on the Oak Tree.
All of your comments mean a lot to me!
I was not sure what the reaction to the tree would be but so far it has been very positive!
I've turned in my application and photos
so I should hear something from the jury by the end of September.
And to answer Jeri's question about how I could part with the tree -
I have sold many weavings, sculptures and dolls that I have put my heart and soul into.
It is very hard to part with them especially since most of my work is one of a kind
and will never happen the same way again.
That's part of an artists life.
You have to sell your work so you can make more.
I have always heard it said that artist's can't afford their own work
and have found unfortunately for that to be true.
For me the joy is in the creating/making of things and being able to do what I love.
