Tigers are really beautiful animals though I never want to meet one in the street. Their coloring and black markings really give them a regal look. With that in mind I decided to paint one; a close up just to remind the viewer who is boss.
I absolutely love to go to fair trade stores. Whenever we travel I look to see if there is a fair trade store in the area. I love the concept of fair trade that the artists, weavers, potters who create and make the products are given a fair price for their work.
I was in Madison a few weeks ago and stopped at Serrv a fait trade store on Monroe Street. On the wall they had the most beautiful baskets from around the world displayed. I askef if I could take a picture. No problem they said. I got home and started painting.
