On a roll...

You'd think that after the storms of the last couple of weeks - not to mention the 8 inches of water I'm trying to deal with in my basement and the leak in the roof - I'd be much too haggard for art.  It is helping to keep my chin up.  I'm taking a class on A is for Artistic given by Marilyn Radzat.  So far I've taken her Head series and her hand and arm series.  I still need to add a little to the palm area of one hand and flesh out/smooth the arm areas but thought I would post a picture or two.  My thought for this figure is to make her a Herald Angel.  She will be a gift for my church.

Second installment - face pendant #2 - not too seriously

This is the second of the two face pendants that I've worked on this week.  It's funny how I make the faces and then it takes so long before I figure out how I want to finish them.  This is the second face that I've worked on this week.  The faces were finished long ago and I just got into a beading frenzy and finished them.  This one really is not taking myself too seriously.

Not too seriously...

Happy Labor Day weekend 2011.  As I come into the unofficial time of fall in the northeast, many things come to mind.  I've had many happy years here in Cambridge, NY.  It's one of the most beautiful places I have ever lived.  I plan to be here for a few more years to come.  (God willing.)

I've been working on some more beaded face pendants and actually have one done and wonder of wonders - I have a picture to post.  I have another one that is well underway and hopefully I will post it by tomorrow. 

For anyone who doesn't know, my last two pieces that I placed in an art gallery were stollen - not something I'm very happy about - I learn the hardway.

This is a face pendant that is a tongue in cheek - actually tongue stuck out rendition of "Don't take yourself too seriously".  Have a great day and hopefully another photo tomorrow.

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with one heman type cat, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over ten years.  There is also a two year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
