Throughout time, artists have learned to become better artists by carefully recreating the work of other respected artists. In that same vein, this drawing was copied from a book by Walter Crane.

Raku Mermaid. I am reminded of Matisse, who kept closets full of costumes and props to use in his paintings. He made many paintings of the same costumes and models, reminding me that there is more than one way to see everything. Many of my ceramics have ended up in my paintings as well.
My friend Tom over at PaleoPlanet was asking for some ceramics, fiber arts and basketry photos so I posted these for him, since this is easier that emailing him a bunch of photos he may not even be interested in. All of these are Fayme originals, and some have been in my collection for years. I can't bear to part with them!
