It’s been raining non-stop here in NYC, creating conditions suitable for staying inside, curling up with a good book, sipping your favorite beverage and quite possibly listening to this.
Now on its way to Canada, a friendly narwhal and sea bird buddy.
I know I’ve been a bit lax in posting these, so here goes:

I was pleasantly surprised last night to find my Sea Swap partner’s creation had found its way from Canada to Brooklyn safe and sound, and waiting for me at my door. Upon opening this is what I found:A beautifully crafted, adorable Mer-Mouse!
Susan Pilotto of Crowsnest Pass is an extremely talented creator of primitive folk art, specializing in needle felting critters such as mice and rabbits.
Much bigger than I had anticipated, I am amazed at the amount of hours that must have gone into this creation…not to mention the stress on Susan’s wrists! I’m especially fond of the wand Ms. Mer Mouse is holding, and sweet expression on her face.
Thank you, Susan!
A sneak peek of my Sea Swap creation, to be finished soon!
I have been given the greenlight to participate in the Interstitial Arts Foundation auction in November, to benefit the IAF and the publication of their latest Interfictions anthology, Interfictions 2. Interstitial art is considered any art, literature, music and perfomance art that crosses art borders and cannot be categorized as one genre. To learn more go to the Interstital Arts Foundation website. I will be creating a piece based on one of the stories within Interfictions 2, titled “The War Between Heaven and Hell Wallpaper” by Jeffrey Ford. Stay tuned!
