It's been very hot out here, today is in the 90's, and we dont have air conditioning in our two story house , which of course my studio rooms are on the second floor..ugh..but I have been listening to books on tape and working away anyways...I designed and made a all cloth painted Bald Eagle yesturday, just had to get it out of my system,..I think he turned out pretty cute, ina primitive folk arty way.
