I recently received word that one of our readers, Lisa Crowther, won first place AND honorable mention for her fabulous paper mache zebra sculpture, which she named “Zowie.” Congratulations, Lisa! Her ribbons are shown below.
Lisa worked hard on this sculpture, and she has every right to be proud of it.
On a totally different note, I’m happy to say that Jessie’s recent experiment with the online art sales website paid off, but not quite as she expected. A visitor saw her work on the auction site, contacted her, and bought an original oil painting directly from Jessie’s own online gallery. So – more congratulations are in order. If anyone else has found a good way to sell artwork, please let us know — and get a nice free link, while you’re at it. 😉 After all, we artists should support each other, shouldn’t we?
And one final note – did you see the news article about a totally new and different way to use paper mache? Inmates dug through the brick walls of a prison and hid their work with paper mache bricks. Until, of course, they were caught. I wonder if they learned how to make paper mache in a prison craft class?
