32nd Annual Cascabel Community Fair.

Photos are from Cascabel Community Fair, Dec. 1, 2012. I seemed to miss getting outdoor fair pics, but got the home of  potter of Cascabel Clayworks, Ivan's home filled with antiques, and the Oasis Bird Sanctuary.

New Portraits

These started out as quick charcoal sketches on newsprint scrap paper. I kinda liked them so they got mounted on birch board, worked in encaustic wax and cold wax.
