An artists's journey

I am reaching out to others - so feel free to comment on my voyage! I will be using this blog to let family and friends to follow the family and my latest art work and shows.
Please comment and visit our other blog.

I am a woman of many interests. On any given day you will find me painting in my studio, sculpting little heads out of clay, throwing pots and bowls on the wheel or writing. I also sew and make art out of found objects. I think I must have ADHD because I jump from project to project. I never get bored and I feel one should learn something new everyday.

2012 -the new year begins

Well folks, I had a busy Dec 2011.  The kids came for a visit all the way from California and I had a successful art show at the Village Artists.

Here I am at my display table of pottery and standing in front of my paintings.  The show ran from Dec 2 and 3rd to coordinate with Homewood's tree lighting ceremony.  It was great to interact with the community especial all the kids.  They were so excited to see the tree lit and Santa was transported down  Ridge Rd via a fire engine!  A good time was had by all.

Here you see some rice bowls I made.

I especially like the glazing on this one. (Jade green and black)

Also created a new paintings for the show and framed one inside a shadow box.

I know it is hard to see in these photos but the seashell painting is actually a shadow box, recessed about an inch into the frame.
As you know, I also refurbish vintage furniture.  My husband found this lovely chair in the garbage.  I used fabric with a theme of picnic goers from the 1950s- "living the high life".  I think I just may have to keep this one!!!

  This is another chair I refurbished and it is currently at the Village Door.  They are a consignment shop that gives their funds to cancer support.  I think their charity is fabulous and I wanted to support them.

I used a piece of vintage hunting fabric on this one.  I think it is from the 1940s- very art deco don't you think?
Well I will wrap this up for now.  Check out the Retrobabs blog to see my New Years Resolutions! And keeping with such....... I off to throw something on the wheel.
