I'm Still Here

Greetings All,
I'm still here and I have been busy. I've made three new "Darlings" they are a part of a series that I've made in the past that people keep asking for. This times they are called the "Biker Babes" (below). I used some pre-printed faces that I got from one of my doll group members Nancy Garwon and I believed that it is some Virginia Robertson fabric. The Babes come with little 3-wheel carts and I re-painted the carts to make them more colorful. I also started a new series of dolls that are dancer. I've only complete one and that's Emerald (below). I will post more as I get them completed.





I've also been working on my art-quilting. Next month I will be a part of two exhibition. One is the 2nd Phantom Gallery Chicago exhibition. One exhibition is at the ABC Bank in the community that I live in and it includes two painters, Alpha Burton and Shirley Hudson. This is an Black History Month event sponsored by the bank and the chamber of commerce. The show runs the full month and our opening reception is February 6, 2008 from 5 to 7 pm at the bank. Check the Phantom link for more info. I will also be at the West Chicago Ave. Branch Library with an exhibition of my art quilts from February 11 til 15, 2008. The reception for this show is on the 11th from 5 til 6 pm and you can check the link for location information. If you are in town during these times and would like to see some of my art quilts or to meet me in person do stop by the receptions.
