Oil Painted Tote Bag Panel

Trying something new in the shopping bag category.  In addition to my original art printed fabric quilted panels, I'm adding original oil paint, ink, and brass grommets on unstretched gessoed canvas.  This one is titled "Yellow and Blue Flowers," size 11" h x 10," w to be appliqued onto a Simple Ecology organic cotton shopping tote.

One of my quilted panel grocery bags and some smaller gift bags are now posted in the Crafts section of my new website Redcrowartworks.com.  The original oil painted panel bags will retail for between $60 and $115 once I get them finished.

Better Bears

Juggling bears, bears who play games, bears bearing balloons - these are all better bears than the ones in Miley Cyrus's cringe-worthy X rated dance at the 2013 MTV-VMAs.  The last image of the bear with balloons and the capital letter B is from the fabulous book The Taylor Twins in Alphabet World available on Blurb here:  http://www.blurb.com/b/2981021-the-taylor-twins-in-alphabet-world

Longbow Camping Art

I spent more time swimming in the ice cold river at Longbow Camp in Oregon than I did doing art, but a few things were accomplished:
Top:  Landscape view of the river 10x14 done with pen & ink and watercolor and glitter
Second:  Some leaves drawn with various pencils
Third:  A postcard-sized pencil sketch of a good Oregon wine bottle and label
Last:  A googly eye portrait done with Wilson Taylor

E.A. Autrey Quilted Grocery Bag

Now that 93 year old E.A. Autrey cannot drive his van anymore, I made him a deluxe two-sided canvas grocery bag with one of his self portraits on one side and a favorite bucket oil painting on the other.  Going to the store on the bus with this bag should be lots of fun!

Camping Collecting Stencil Cut-outs

What's cooler to find than a collection of original stencil cut-outs?  Well, maybe bird feathers, interesting leaves and a few beautiful rocks.  Hopefully the little Longbow campers will find all of these treasures to collect in their new treasure bags when they go camping next week!   See prior post for the treasure bags here:  http://autreyart.blogspot.com/2013/08/fun-with-fabric.html

Fun With Fabric

A gift bag, five treasure bags and a grocery bag with a quilted art panel.  Having fun sewing with printed art on fabric, laminated fabrics, and grommets!
