PAINT PARTY FRIDAY NEW YEAR

Hi Everyone!
I hope all of you have a wonderful New Years Eve. It was quite here, just the way I like it.
This is the first Paint Party Friday of the year. I wish I had something new to show your but so far this year I have been busy busy busy and I have company right now.
So I am showing a piece I did in 1996. The face is molded then covered in two types of leather and sewn in a traditional stitch. The pipes I made in early 2000. Made with Cedar pipe stems. The top pipe is made with deer antler and deer hide. The bottom is carved from soap stone and covered in deer hide. They both smoke.
Be sure to stop by PPF to see the other fantastic artists who have joined in.

  6. Wow Nicole! I had some friends who exhibted at art shows with me and they created leather faces too but I must say, this one is tops. I love the side stiching and the way the leather flows gracefully down at the bottom of piece. Your talent shines through with so many mediums.
