Using my last painting as a backdrop, I’m showing what has kept me busy — corn husk art. I gathered husks from a plowed corn field, but they are not pretty since they are mostly broken. However, they are OK for Halloween. I showed these to my amused family, and my oldest immediately said, “What are they — “Children of the Corn?” There it was, the perfect spooky title at the perfect time of year!
PS...I’ve ordered better corn husks and want to make more dolls. There’s a Native American legend about the origin of these faceless dolls which I’ll include it in my next post.
