I'm In!

The Winter 2010 edition of Somerset Gallery will be hitting the newsstands on December 1 and if you turn to page 97 you'll see my piece entitled The Perry Girls Ride the Range.

It's made in a wooden cigar box that I painted and papered and embellished.

That's my 4 year old self in the Hoppalong Cassidy shirt and my older sister Becky, looking like she might rather be somewhere else. Every Christmas when I was young I got new six shooters and a new cowboy hat - but the addition of the shirt was extra special.

This was an extremely fun piece to work on as it brought up wonderful memories of a very happy childhood.
