Don't be afraid to let things ruminate in your brain with a piece from time to time...sometimes what is obvious to others at first doesn't ring that way to you until you let it sit a bit...I am SO grateful that someone noticed this "flaw" in the original design...and I HOPE I would have caught it later...

I have to admit that life has become a little like an out of body experience. My father is nearing his last days here with us, so there is a lot of planning and emotion attached to my days. We are close to God in my family, so for us it will be a blessing to know that he is free of the trappings that cancer has brought to his body. We want him to be free...it is just the goodbyes and the waiting that sort of make time stop for me often now. I'm sure there are so many of you that know exactly what I am talking about. My job search has sort of stalled, and I move about, often just in order to ease the feelings that overwhelm me at times. This too shall pass...and things will be fine...but for now...I am just glad for every moment of clarity and creativity that most certainly for me...ease the moments that I feel overwhelmed! I hope each of you have creative thoughts to fill your day...it is truly a great present for artists isn't it!!

window #3 detail
Thursday, June 7, 2012
Above is the second "window" of the all in one triptych I am working on...Enjoying it all the way around! I used the same cast to do the poppy from the back...just didn't include texture in the middle...The lighting is a little atrocious, but I'm working on better lighting when I post the three windows together as one piece!!

I've been planting in pots on my deck...and these little guys broke off...but, as you KNOW we artists never take something beautiful for granted...we photograph them...you NEVER KNOW when we may want to paint something...

Last night was the one year birthday of Creations Art and Gifts and the opening reception for their new watercolor artists and ME...:) I wasn't the "star" of the show, but I sure had a great presence in the gallery...thanks to Vickey and Tom Swenson, artists and owners of the gallery!
and, there was more up and to the left...whew!!
Creations is a lovely gallery, full of art, pottery, sculpture, jewelry, cards and MORE...Very beautifully laid out in an old house with beautiful wooden floors...
I would invite you to take the time to hop over to Louisville to see the gallery and the town...voted number one place to live in America several times...and I can see why...the whole main street is lined with restaurants, galleries and shops, a cute little town that was FULL of people last night for the First Friday in June!
And, so, NOW I'm working on some paper casts to highlight in my next demo which will be for the Mountainside Art Guild of which I am a member...Wednesday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m. at the Clements Community Center; 1580 Yarrow St., Lakewood, CO (apx Wadsworth and Colfax)...If you are in the area and so desire to see what paper cast is all about and what you can DO with it...stop by! I know it looks like a sunflower cast...but NO, these are for the poppy cast piece I will demo! FUN DOINS!!
