Az & Miri

LARGER IMAGE

Nearly sixteen years ago a pregnant kitty wandered into our lives. Five days later she gave us six grand-kitties, five of them calico girls, born on my Gram's birthday. It was a sign.........Two of the kitties were adopted by my sons; and wouldn't you know it? They were my favorites! But I never encouraged them to choose these two. Jeff chose Azrael, who was his partner in crime in many things, even moving cross-country to Colorado. She was a lover and very vocal and talked with me on the phone many times. She was especially colorful. We lost her in 2015. Steve took Miriamele, named after a character in a book he had read. Not as colorful or vocal, but just as sweet and loving. We lost her in 2016. This design is a tribute to them and the loving sons who cared for them.

Easter Fraktur

LARGER IMAGE
  Easter Fraktur - $8.50

Watercolor and ink were the mediums used for painting frakturs (a folk art form produced by Pennsylvania Germans mainly during the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. The name comes from a German script marked by "fractured" pen strokes and it has roots in European folk culture. Fraktur became a rich and colorful form in the United States and was used to create birth records, wedding records, death records, etc.) Painted on wooden dominoes, this design is my interpretation of this art-form. This design is very functional and can be used in many ways. This photo shows the dominoes in a faux- grained frame, making it look a bit more like the antique it resembles. Attach a pin back to each one and you have three pins to add decoration to your wardrobe! Line them on a shelf and you have small decorations for the smallest area!

Myan Children of the Corn

LARGER IMAGE
  Myan Children of the Corn - $8.00

The Mayans believed they were created by gods who added their own blood to flour made from corn, a plant native to their Central American homelands. Thus, they were children of the corn. Though their empire is long gone, the Mayans live on. An estimated 1.5 million to 4.5 million descendants of the Mayans inhabit southern Central America. In Mexico's Yucatan region, many residents still speak Maya languages and wear clothing virtually indistinguishable from that depicted in ancient carvings. And, like their ancestors, they pursue a spiritual life. I saw a film about today’s Mayans and their struggles at the Cleveland International Film Festival. This design is dedicated to them.
