The winner and the Winter Queen

First, the winner of the give-away is Carol from Art-N-Quilt. Congratulations Carol. And thanks to everyone who took part in my very first give-away.
So awhile ago I started the Winter Queen and gave up on her.
I just couldn't figure out how to finish her up. Then my sister Kate suggested the fabric treatment and VOILA she was right.Itis just what I needed.
I pried up part of the fox fur and glued it inplace. Then I just twisted it till it looked right. Then I sewed a few seed beads to hold the twist in place. Then I used a tack on the back to secure it.
All in all I'm pretty happy with her. She will be going into the show.

OMG Mary! This is awsome. Just exquisite! I LOVE white art, and LOVE this piece. Your growth and evolution as an artist is humbling and inspiring. You really know how to push the envelope, something I wish I could dare to do more often. You are truly inspirational, and I look forward to our upcoming swap. Best wishes for your show, I'm sure you'll do great with art like this.
