More Heart War Sketches

The working title for the show is "The Great Heart War of 184o something". Here are more sketches. I have been sketching during the day and composing fabric at night. My quota is currently 3 a night so I will have plenty to sew on during our fourth of July trip to Alabama, a week and a half away.

Delayed Pictures of ICE

I have finally received pictures of my booth from the Indie Craft Experience. It is really the same ol’ same ol’, only in a tent. The tent was fun because I was able to hang up some of the little paintings and balloon vases. Oh!, also you can see the debut of “the banner”.

I am working on a new project. It will be a gallery show full of my fabric paintings (or, Works in Applique). All the paintings will be related and tell the dramatic story of the civil war between the Wings and the Arms. Here are a couple of sketches that hint at what is going on. I will post more when I get more of the story down and feel comfortable with the drawings. I will be doing nothing but this until the end of september, NOTHING, Not only because the gallery is large and their can't be too many gaps in the narrative, but I want to go up in size. Right now the largest one I have done has been 16" X 20". I want to start measuring in feet. We shall see how this will unfold.

The Swag leftovers from the Ice Show were turned into fancy pendants. I am not super happy with them but for a first try they turned out ok. I will be doing more of these before Christmas.

Website Update

The Little Fabric Paintings are now up on the Website. If you keep up with me here you have already seen them.

Jacob's Fabric Painting

Now that ICE is behind me, I am really excited to get to work on my next project. Some of my best friends, Dawn and Jeff, brought a bundle of joy into this world not to long ago. Now they have commissioned me to make a fabric painting for his room. This will be my most elaborate fabric painting yet.
