I’m having a lot of fun making funeral fans to take to the Holiday Show this year! I thought the Birth of Venus was an appropriate image for this first one. She’s getting blown to shore by the North Wind. If you were stuck in church in the heat with no AC, you’d probably love to have a skelly fan to cool yourself off with, right?

Back in the day, churches would sell advertising on the backs of their paper fans. I made up my own for this one.

I’ll have ten altogether. Hope you can make it to the show!
