January works

 A series of four works based on family members as if they were part of a side show.
 The small quilts are made to look like the banners that were posted outside the sideshows to lure people in to see the show.
 The figures are all based on photos that span several decades.
I wanted to play with the idea of exaggeration, making normal people and activities into sideshow material just by presenting them as such.  I also wanted to do it with a sense of humor and play.
