Darla and Susan...(who took the words right out of my mouth!) The Screamer
project takes us one semester. Way too long for what you have in mind. I
agree with Susan.
One good show-stopper is the pantyhose sculpture. You can probably find the
instructions in the Artsednet archives. Just enter "Pantyhose sculpture".
That would take you about two weeks if you wanted to really focus on the
painting end. One week if you DIDN'T want to spend time on good painting.
Another might be the rock faces that WERE on my website. If you're
interested, email privately and I'll send you an attachment or two. Cheap,
fun project that's different.
Sounds like you're allowed to do ANYTHING...so...what are your fortes? Do
you cook, sew, etc.? Or do you want to stay with "art" due to your
Good luck. Let us know what you decide to do. Toodles....Bunki
