Ho ho ho time is almost here. Today is frigid and windy and clear. Too cold for playing outside in the cold, hot coffee and crafting the story to be told. Inspired by friend April Cole, today was playful coffee cuff upcycling. And finishing my contemporary calypso rag wreath. I’m hooked on these knotted […]
Spent the weekend doing small projects. Around the house, in the yard and in the studio. Put some garlands up on the painted wall in the guest room (lavender Pino pillow by artist Katherine Dunn). Made paper flowers and put them in the hangout space. Shibori dyed and over-dyed thrifted fabrics, t shirts […]
A new doll in the works. Remember that pink stitching here. A new pincushion from some darling Japanese fabric from the stash. Work on the collage wall continues The stack waiting to be read. Sunset views over the barn. And a little light for the night. Night night.
Faces for Soul Food, faces for Mix It Monthly…practicing not practicing and being sketchy. Or trying to be anyway. Trying to let go and be loose. That’s sort of working, maybe? More not practicing to come… Faces with unusual hats/head gear for Mix it Monthly…. Trying for a bit more realism…at least my version of […]
Keeping it simple, although the wrapping is calling and I am ignoring…..snow is just beginning to fall again and I am heading out for another walk with furry friends. Temps have risen ever so slightly to a balmy 17F, so I won’t entirely freeze….Silly snowman coming off Sunday’s second doodle juice page. Keeping it simple […]
Coming back to life after my cold, slowly, and some snow. Shoveling was NOT a treat, but watching the dogs romp and play was the best medicine. Needing some happy doodle juice to get me flowing again… Gotta get around to some wrapping, um, maybe tomorrow? Back to my book.
Out for a stroll. Cold and So sunny. Black White and Red(READ) all over. A flower of sorts some moss and some berries. The rust and decay The rules for today Off in the shadows this cold and sunny day.
Before the birds were singing, I was painting in the studio. Movement, release, energy, play. All of these things were at work as the sun was coming up over the Atlantic. The painting I was working on is not done, but I was culling older collage pieces to recycle them into new work and SeRenDIpiTY […]
I am just returned, although I think I left my heart in Texas, at least for a little while. It needs to soak up all that love and deep learning that showed up at Lucky Star Art Camp. I still need time to process all that moved me and that will take quite a while, […]
Upbeat and colorful. You know me, push color. Monoprinting on the gelli with wonky circles and a couple of stencils by good friends, Stitch a Doily by Maria McGuire and Dots and Dashes by Jessica Sporn. Usings teal and red and yellows and oranges……some digital manipulation on the black photo….just exploring and playing and pushing color. […]
