    My life in art. I do miss the years that I spent painting my decorative and folk art and going to shows and visiting with people and friends.

    I am having a feeling to do a little craft show as of late, I have a few things and can make a few more.

    I thought I would post some funny pics of things I use to sell. Bear in mind that I don't have any of this stuff anymore, everything was sold except the pig and that's the story lol...

    Here is a group of happy cows that sold at the first show, I didn't have a one left. hahahah they used to make me laugh. I would set tables up in my studio and as I finished a group, I would put them on the tables.

    There was this huge Frankie and he sold right away lol. I still have the pattern and might repaint him for myself now.

    And then there was the pig. I cut him out myself and painted him and took a lot of time with him. I noticed hubby being very strange around the pig, he kept putting him in places where he couldn't be seen. I came right out and asked him what his deal was...he confessed he loved the pig and hoped he didn't sell....hahahahahah

    Well I just took that pig and hid him and gave him to hubby, he was so happy....I guess he knew I wouldn't make another as he was a bear to cut. The pig is still here at the doorstep leading to the studio lol.....

    Love your work, especially the cows! Sooo glad you kept the pig for your DH. They are both keepers for sure.

    I definitely think you should sell them again. I remember doing lots of craft shows at the malls back in the late 80's and early 90's and this stuff sold like crazy.
