We have been very busy here at the Ranch, making things and preparing for the MYSTERY TRIENNIAL art show at ATHICA. I have three pieces I am getting ready for that night. Here are some pictures from when I was working on them.
My brother Joe helped me some with making these little guys into...
...string puppets! These string puppets were inspired by some that our uncle brought us back from his trip to Mexico when I was little. I think we got some sombreros, too.
I made an elf boy and girl, and their pet cat. I think the cat is sort of Nilla-shaped, too! Here are pictures of the boy and cat, but I thought I took some of the girl, but it looks like I just took doubles of the boy accidentally. She is shown in one of the top photos, though. I assure you, dear readers, she is just as cute at the ones I have shown here.
So, come check out the Mystery Triennial at ATHICA on Saturday, August 20th! It looks like a great show with lots of terrific artists!
