Fabric Painting — “I’m fixing a hole”

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in.  And stops my mind from wandering  Where it will go.” The Beatles.  This song was floating through my head, while painting these floating heads.


The opposite side of the laundry cart.

Farmhouse rehab has been taking up hours and hours of my time.  Dog fencing is going in.  350 feet fenced thus far, another 250 to go.  The lawn was like a hay field, so that got mowed today as well.  No lack of exercise here.  Walls are going up, ceilings start next week and it won’t be long before I can show you all something that looks like something.  Packing, moving, purging, painting, mowing and fencing – oh and work too.  Now I am ready to float through blogland and catch up on the millions of blog post I have missed this week.  If you don’t hear from my you’ll know I’m under the weight of  blog reading and I haven’t emerged yet.

    I know the feeling. You are in the center of the farm rehab “storm”. But in a good way. So great seeing you last week.

    P.s. love that song and the Beatles. You’re faces are funky cool and will look great on your laundry bag.

    I like using song titles as themes for art ideas!

    Love your hole in the head! Glad your work is progressing, one day it will be done! And you are more than half way there with the dog fence, great! Hugs, Valerie

    They do look as if they’re dealing with a LOT of things at the same time ….. Keep going, and, oh yes, try to relax a little bit too sometimes … 😉

    These floating heads feel light and airy as you must relax doing them, after all the hard work!
    Your creations always feel so spontaneous and free! I look forward to seeing your farm house as it comes along, it will reach a stage where things will move quicker. All the best,

    These sorts of projects take much time, and much more energy than you more than likely imagined when you started. Of course, I don’t envy you the mowing. I have enough trouble with my tiny patch of ground. As for the fencing, all I can say is “good luck.” Not much help there, since I’ve only made one dog run and it’s still standing.

    I know what you mean about playing “catch up” in blogland when one misses even a day. But your excuse is certainly a valid one, Corrine, what with closing up one house and readying another! I am glad that you found some time to paint in the midst of all this. And, paint you did! Loving the inspiration and the outcome here!

    These two beings fascinate me, they are quite remarkable.
    What a lot of energy you have, glad you have made time to make and show us these.
    I think the one on the right is calm, but she may be spaced out. The one on the left is having a good think, I think,

    Cool colors on your floating heads…
    you are a working dervish Corrine!
    looking forward to seeing your new digs…

    Those heads might be a bit startling when meeting them around the corner! I eagerly await seeing your cart as well as the furtherment of your new home.

    Haha too sweet ! Those two heads have holes which let me pop the song from passenger into my head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpluQ-wTbtU…wonderful crazy painting Corrine, hope you feel a bit more calmer than the two 😉 Have fun!

    I’m charmed by your heads – you’re going to have the coolest laundry basket in all the land! Keeping up with blog reading is always a challenge – you want to stay connected to those blogs you love to read, you want to check in on the “read sometimes” blogs, and it’s really fun to explore new blogs, but where does it end? I find I could spend all my free arting time in blogland! You’ve certainly got enough on your plate for now…..blog checks should be the least of your worries! We love you no matter what….

    So glad you’re finding time to play amidst all that heavy lifting!

  19. Jessica Sporn August 9, 2014 at 8:38 am #

    I so relate my friend. Glad you found time for some art. And love that tune and your floating heads too!

  20. Janet August 9, 2014 at 1:22 pm #

    LOVE the art!! And after reading all the things you’ve been doing, I think I’ll go have a nap…I’m exhausted! 🙂

    digging through 2 weeks of missed blog posts tonight. I hate falling so far behind because I end up skimming and not giving posts the attention they deserve. (and my comments get even more intermittent.) Thankfully I’ve been keeping up with you a little better on FB. I’m blown away by your productivity in the house and your ability to keep creating in the face of it.
