A Nod To Distant Revolutions

Made with vintage ephemera (letter dated 1837, French postage stamp and Eiffel Tower postcard) in a salvaged window frame.

“Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité,” French for “Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood,” is the national motto of France which has origins in the French Revolution.

The Eiffel Tower was built to celebrate the centennial of the French Revolution.

Post-Show Blues

This time last week my partner and I were set up at Folkfest St. Pete… It was hotter than _______ (insert appropriate expletive here) and there were growing pains as the show was held in a new location this year, but overall I was happy to be out there with my art and we had a good weekend. As is always the case after a big show like this, I have felt a little sad it was over so quickly. We ended up winning 3rd Prize for our booth display so I thought I’d share some photos… More close-up photos of new art to come in the next week or so…
