What an interesting idea !!!
A tree sweater.
It sure brightens things up a bit.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I've been checking out your other knitting links too & am very inspired...would be fun to hook up and take a pic with your tree sometime...(hint-hint) long will the tree be wearing your art?

Do you do these paintings of peoples faces from imagination? Or did someone model with that shocked expression for you? (at least long enough for you to take a photo! It would be hard to keep that expression for any length of time!)

Some faces are from some are drawings where I have intermingled the faces from photographs, some are from life, but mostly they are from photographs I have taken or manipulated. I should do a blog entry on it eh!
