Every Christmastime, for years now, I’ve been making Christmas cards for a woman in town. She likes to include a story related to the card design, making them very personal. I also do other artwork for her-framed illustrated sayings, painted signs, decorative items. For this Christmas, she wanted to give her granddaughters replicas of some antique hat forms she had seen in an antique store. A carpenter made the forms and I painted them. This is the first one, wearing a cloche of mine.
