Well, I've finished my bottles...

So here's some photos of my bottles for the forty show....once I finished them, I realized three things....one, that painting on bottles is haaaaard...two, that I'm not a good painter (tho it is fun), and three, these looked soooooooooo much better in my head...so forgive me. Color really isn't my forte...I'm most comfortable with pencil and/or ink...maybe one or two colors tops...anyway...i have no idea how much to price these things...I'll let Mike price them...hehe...


I was playing around with sponges on the monkey bottle...it didn't turn out that well...kinda hard to have any kind of stencil with a bottle...and plus, I've just never done it before...




and here's one of Esther...and her banana slug hair clip that
Karin made...damn...i feckin' love this thing...so does Esther...so, bug her 'bout making tons more so you can buy them too!! She has a whole bunch of different animals and stuff...chicken leg, dead fish, octpopus...and all of them are the rad.
