MOVING SPIRIT- work in progress

This garden scene was begging for a coat of paint and I obliged. It's been hanging around since it was painted in 1995. There were things I liked and still like about it, but I like it better now. The result used up yet more of my water soluble oils and offers some interesting possibilities for completion.

Promise, promises

These are photos of material I'm going to use to create a new banner. I've been doing sketches and plans. I'll post some of those soon. I just love all the subtle colors and textures. Now...if I can just get my sewing machine to work! Just another kind of art supply and it holds all the promise and potential for something beautiful...if I can just get my sewing machine to work!
I'm like my daughter when she was 3- I know what I want to do but I'm frustrated by my lack of knowledge...if I can just get my sewing machine to work! Does that sound like a prayer? It is!

Jetson's Library

This morning I hung 51 pieces of art at the Wyoming (MI) Public Library AKA the Jetson's Library- you see why it's nicknamed that! It's a wild design and there's a huge gallery space as part of it. Dee Versluis, Mary Andersen, Sue Bukrey and my darlin' Fred helped me hang the show.

51 pieces of art- OH MY!

Here's the show. Details below.

The fire extinguiser isn't one of my pieces!

I have been remiss! Time is flying and I'm not blogging like I used to. So many things demanding attention this time of year. This tiny watercolor is like August's last hurrah.

I'm hanging a big show of work tomorrow at the Wyoming Library and there are many details to address before we load the cars and go to hang it. Thankfully there should me many hands available! I hoping the world will slow down a bit and I'll have time to do more icons and other painting, not just framing and labeling and hanging.

I changed my whole wall at Fire and Water in Lowell too. Whew!
