Not much art to show recently - but here is Finnian, my sailor girl, in the dress we made
with a 'sailor' collar - her drawings, my stitching on tulle
and she made the waistcoat with 'chilli' buttons for her David.

So good to hear from you, Alison. What a great dress for your sailor girl and what a cute couple she and David make on their bicycle built for two.

The story behind the dress is great - it is amazing how some things just seem meant to be. The dress is charming as are the bride and groom!

The perfect dress for a sailor girl! They make a beautiful couple--Best Wishes for their future!!

Enjoyed your paintings. You've really captured the elements that make up the styles of Degas and Chagall. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

This is too weird. Our son got married in August (I have a sketch on my blog) and they rode their tandem, post-ceremony, around the parking lot. Our couple looks very similar to your couple. Neat.
