Summer is in full swing and I am drawn to the textures & colors in the garden.
Had to bring this teeny floral arrangement inside after the bush got a pruning.
Got this sweet ceramic frog at an art fair last summer. Time to put it to good use.
Hosta leaves make such a great statement on their own.
Dunno, just had to take picture of these eggs.
One of my recent creations now graces the fabric table with one of my favorite tools,
the everyday clothes pin.
So here's the real reason for all the above photos and noticing tiny details in everyday things.
Here goes, transparency time.
Above is all the "stuff" I took to the art fair last week end. I sold one piece.
Despondency ensued the next day. After a bit of a pity party, a good walk in the park,
and some time in the studio looking at inspirational ideas saved over time, I'm ready to move on.
I figure all this experimentation with fabric, paint, stencils, stitching was
a learning experience that can be applied to bigger things.
The rest of the summer will be spent just playing around in the studio to uncover old & new ideas, some sketching, going back to playing with photography...
& some great travel coming up for us in a few weeks.
Not to mention lots of music & visit from friends on the calendar.
Lots of the storage items I've made are being put to use in my own home.
That was plan B all along.There is still areas I can add more bins to, & I will.
When all else fails, there is always beer. Love these corn hole boards at Right Brain Brewery.
It could be my self portrait from last weekend. Thanks for "listening".
