Happy Chinese New Year. Whether you celebrate it or not, it's always fun to depict it in art.
I realize my camera takes really, really lousy photos, but one detail you can see in this photo that is hard to see in the scans is the second layer I used. I got the not-so-bright idea to add it under the very thin bed sheet I used for the top layer. However, the second layer was made from stretchy fabric, an old tank top, that wanted its own way and, like a spoiled, unruly child, gave me a very hard time. In the end, I simply allowed it to have its way.
Since I'm unable to see my own blog (according to a phone conversation with my friend Scott, it might be either a blogger problem, or more likely, a memory or cache problem, or a result of something I might have downloaded that infected my computer), I'm spending the day with my friend Sally. We are headed to a book fair out of town, but I'll be home tomorrow to celebrate Chinese New Year in style. Have a great Chinese New Year tomorrow (February 10, 2013).
