Evelyn Ackerman hooked tapestry

Wow I just bought and Ackerman tapestry (I think) for a really great price.  I would probably not  have spotted it all rolled up in a box if it had not been for this wonderful post from Mid Centuria

El Gato Gomez- makes me happy

 I have two wonderful paintings by the incredible artist  El Gato Gomez.  She (occasionally misrepresented as he) is wonderful.   She was once even so kind as to add a bit  of her signature squiggle to a painting for me. I don't know why but this little grouping makes me so happy - kinda reminds me of a Dali or Cocteau stage set. Here is her link Her style often changes and when a series you love is gone well she just keeps on moving-and then there is something else you love

Yes those are Skinny La Minx birds rotating in the front. Thanks Heather Moore.

Ivan Terestchenko thanks for the "inspiration"

HI here is the first little piece of pottery I have made - it is very heavily influenced or shall we say copied from  the style of Ivan Terestchenko. But I was so happy it made it through the kiln and survived to pay homage to the 2 great pieces I have by Ivan.
See this post for his great pieces
