I love the idea of drinking wine and shopping. Actually, no scratch that. I love the idea of OTHER people drinking wine and shopping at my booth. No wait.

I’m not entirely sure where this piece is going. I started it a while ago and then picked it up again recently and just about finished the bird. There is a little detail work left. But I need to figure out the rest of his home. What you don’t see in this photo is that this bird occupies a small
