Not painting much lately…

…but I have been busy with other crafty projects:

This year for Halloween, John is going as Link from Legend of Zelda. We made his sword and shield out of papier-mâché. I sewed his green tunic and hat, and the black boot covers with my sewing machine. I also sewed his sister’s parrot costume. And she wants it known that she is a ‘Scarlet Macaw’, her favorite parrot, which is an endangered species.

You can see more photos of the costumes and their construction here.
