Highland Art Gallery had a new members' show last weekend and since I was the only new member in the gallery when the newspaper reporter showed up with her camera, I got my picture in the paper! This is a watercolor painting I did of Longhorns in the Bluebonnets and my husband Jerry made the frame out of an old cedar beam from our house.

I just finished making this Easter bunny doll using a Syndee (now discontinued) doll head and a light gray faux fur with a nice long pile. I used textured upholstery velvet for paws, feet and ear lining and stuck some mohair curls around the face for a little realism. The doll ended up being 20 inches tall and about 25 inches around the belly and took lots of stuffing. I made a neck bow out of a sparkly Easter print and fixed a few silk flowers and ribbon on 1 ear. For sale at http://www.joyceweaver.etsy.com/ and www.artfire.com/users/joyceweaver. A real fun project and I'm happy with the way it turned out!
