Tooled Leather Art Box - WOYWW
I was so excited when my friend told me I could take it home with me .At one time it might have carried important documents for a Texas attorney. I can see him now, in his stetson hat and handmade boots walking the halls of the McLennan County Courthouse! The year is 1965 and he smells of English Leather!
But now my fabulous art box travels with ME to exotic places like the Chihauhuan Desert of Texas and holds my pencils, pastels and sketch books quite well!
So what's on my workdesk you ask?
Sketches from my trip back in June to Marfa, Texas and the remote areas south of there are in my handy art box/workdesk. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks these sketches will develop into finished creations to be exhibited at my local Artist Guild show in September! The title of the show will be "Chinati" and will feature the works of my fellow artists....all of us inspired on our wonderful retreat to the mountains, desert and Chinati Hot Springs Resort!
