Painted ukulele

Do you remember Woody Guthrie’s guitar?   Pete Seeger’s banjo?   Well, Woody’s guitar had “this machine kills facists” painted on it, and Pete’s banjo has “this machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender” painted on it.   My friend is, perhaps, starting a band called The Ice Cream Socialists.   I painted a ukulele for him.

Artist's Trading Cards meeting

Man, what a time I had last night!   We had a meeting of our Artist’s Trading Cards group, and we have been working on something very different for us.   Usually we work in paper, but we decided to do a prayer flag exchange, and make fabric flags.   Everyone was given 20 squares of muslin with no instruction and a short description of prayer flags. Then we brought them all to the meeting last night and exchanged them.   I am astounded at the creativity of this group!   I haven’t yet had a chance to string my flags, but here are some photos of the exchange.
