I went to the last Art Fest week before last and had so much fun. Unfortunately, I came home and caught a cold again. I am so very tired of being sick! This blog post is mostly pictures. I’m very, very busy getting ready for a dyeing workshop with my doll club next weekend and so am going to leave you with pictures of the wild flowers that are gracing Central Texas and my Art Fest creations.
This is what it looks like in a field near my office. You wouldn’t guess that there is a major shopping center just beyond the trees.
A lonely fire hydrant.
One of many butterflies gracing our fields and skies.
My backyard flower bed.
My first class at Art Fest was with Michelle Allen (Michelle’s blog). Great class, fun techniques, fantastic teacher! My dolls are the surfer tweety and octopus. The odd gentleman is Kristy’s. I hadn’t seen Kristy since 2008 when she stopped in Austin for SxSW and we had coffee! We had 2 classes together and had so much fun catching up and sharing band discoveries.
Second class was Misfit dolls with Lana Guerra (www.crudethings.com). Mine is the pink and orange beauty with the spots and stripes.
Last but not least, was Wings with Cynthia Thornton of Green Girl Designs. Loved this class and had so many ideas!
