Driving in the car, Shopgirl and Ace are excited!

Laying out the collected Varsity letters that,Darlene helped me sew on the felt, I distressed. It measures  6 ft!

Me and Dayna Collins, her show opens next!
I'm so lucky to have friends who show up to see the art (l-r Leslie Janet Rachael Alea),  Getting ready for a solo show can be draining, over 32 pieces. This will be it for quite awhile!

Thanks for coming to the opening, only 2 weeks left!
