I'm gearing up for my first ever 'studio tour' which is actually more a house tour since they are pretty much one and the same. I spent Sunday afternoon working on several canvas tote bags that I thought would be nice to offer as possible impulse buys. Unfortunately, I never know when to quit on these. Here are two of the four. The remaining two are variations of the Bird Yin Yang piece I'm putting down below as a detail shot. What do you think? They are 9 by 12 inch bags and I used acrylic with textile medium and gave them a quick ironing after I was finished. Would you buy 'em? How much is fair? Some more of that Original Jones Art from Austin, Texas, that rambling town.

looks especially great on canvas. perhaps you should consider using it

Artist Reply: I liked the sketch and this came out OK for a tote bag but I'm thinking of trying this again on a prepared canvas, Nikolay. The ones I didn't sell are hanging from the knobs on my bookcase in the living room presently. :)

Looks great! The fabric of the tote makes the painting look like it has more texture
