Man in a Kilt

This fellow is made from some over-dyed Laura Ashley fabric that I have had in my stash since the 70′s. Yes, it’s true, I never throw anything away. When I was last sorting through the fabric drawers and came across it, I realized it would make good medieval-looking tattoos.

We had a few days of Spring this week. It makes one hopeful.

Another kilted man

This fine fellow started out as a composition in browns- his toile tattoos, his eyes and hair, his boots, shorts, embroidery details… but when I got to choosing a kilt color and I’d pulled out more browns, well, it just wasn’t working for me. So, Red!

You can see his brown striped shorts and his knees-
