Ruby Tuesday

After 9-11 everyone was donating money. This lovely handmade wall art was made by a local artist. It is hard to see in the pictures but she uses real earrings and bows and the material is different silks. I was the high bidder at the auction and it has been on my wall every since. I love the way she did the faces on the women.

Please visit Mary the Teach at the Work of The Poet to see more Ruby Tuesday entries.

What an interesting wall hanging. I can see why you like it so much.

This is an awesome piece of work!
I can tell the bow and earring are real. They really add an extra dimension to the work. I think the slippery silk material would have been difficult to work with. Amazing work!

What an unusual piece of art. Yes, the faces do show a lot of expression and character. Amazing how she created that. Thanks for stopping by my RT shot. Hi from rainy California.

The work of art is amazing. It will be a family heirloom and should be considered a valuable work of art. More wonderful photos of winter beach, buffalo, and flying goose. Poisonous Snakes is a serious sign. I am mainly concerned about brown recluse spiders in my home possibly. I had a benign small lump on my left leg below my knee on the shin removed before knee replacement. It is my thought that a recluse bit me there and I didn't know it and it was killed before it did anymore damage inside a pant leg. Helen (madcobug) told me about her husband declining to spray insecticide under a home because it would just aggravate the hard to kill spiders that were everywhere. mark/salty
