We just love anything with a southwest theme. The band in the hair is made of beads. The maiden consists of several sections. The skirt, the blanket, the head and separate hair to add dimension.

This is a more modern octagon frame. There are jewels in the hair bun with brass edges.

The pottery shop still hangs in our living room. The beads are strung and attached to the back side of the body. Each pot creates a different layer.

Village People-Yep back in my day! I actually painted some of this with nail polish because I just could not find the acrylic that I wanted. - The ladder is made with sticks from our trees and the shutters are cut and glued to actually swing open.

Wow! I didn't know this cubit existed until tonight. I have, of course seen some of your art before but a lot of these are new to me. Village people is my favorite. The colors and the feeling of community it portrays is wonderful.

You know that one is the most out of perspective thing we have ever done, but it sure gets the comments. The ladder is make of sticks from my garden and the shutters and that wall with the door is so crooked I can't believe it. The ladies scarves are painted with red nail polish cause I didn't have the scarlet paint on hand. It hangs in our living room and I am looking at it now and smiling at how out of whack it is!

Perspective is important for architectural blueprints and to some degree to art...but art has the freedom to alter reality in order to portray mood and that piece very definately creates a mood. The things you point out as flaws are actually a big part of why the piece works so well.
