It's just about art show season and I have a significant void of inventory. Hence, glued to the chair! However, truth be known, I work mostly standing up! Has something to do with only being 5 feet tall.
So, I am finishing up a couple of journals, and beginning some new mosaic stuff. My plan is going toward some children's art first. During the time our grandson was in PICU it became apparent to me that bright colored art was a huge focal point for children who are struggling with their health, especially brain injury related patients. I knew right then I would do some children's pieces. I hope to begin tiling something today! But I am never sure if my preconceived idea is really where I will go until I get in the studio and begin working. We'll see!
(8 hours later ...) Turns out today was the day my sweet husband, Paul decided to change the screened in porch to a glassed in porch because I have been begging for it to be sheltered from the elements. He found someone who was generously giving away windows they are replacing in their home. We love to recycle! SO, I spent a good bit of time being the "helper" today ... but so worth it! Look how great they look! And they are so nice to have in the room. Now I can work in there without freezing (although we hear there will be *snow* on Tuesday!). And every other window opens and there is a screen to keep out the critters so when I grout I won't have any "additives"!
A BEAUTIFUL day in the neighborhood! THANK YOU, Mother Nature for the lovely day!
Hope you all have creative, productive days this weekend. The sun is out and the birds are singing, primarily doves are calling today. The breeze is swirling all the blossoms around. We are very grateful the crazy HIGH wind has died down! It was very wild here! Do hope all of you are safe, and are blessed.
Happy art making weekend, friends!
