Art Show

Standard

Exciting news… I have entered my work in a local art show and was accepted! My work hasn’t been in a show since I was in college. I’m hoping that people respond to it and maybe, just maybe .. buy it. I don’t want to get my hopes up, though. I got the official word and saw the official invitation yesterday. There’s just something about seeing your name in print!  The show is called Treasures. Here’s my work:

Snowflake of the Past

This work features a painted canvas adorned with a crocheted doily I hand stitched on. I collect doilys and thought this was a beautiful way to display one.

The Gift of Knowledge

This work is a  hand painted muslin square that I hand stitched to painted watercolor paper.  I believe that knowledge is a gift that people take for granted. Not everyone in the world is lucky enough to be given an education. Our society forgets that and often doesn’t take  advantage of the opportunities its given.

Hello, Stranger

Standard

I can’t believe how long it has been since my last post. So much has been happening around here. First, Gigi came and spent 9 days with us. We took her all over the place and wore ourselves out. After a few days of recovery, sickness hit out house. Mr. Penguin was sick with a cold for about a week and then I had a fierce allergy attack. Lil Penguin remained healthy and was great company for us sickies.

 After all that I got busy on Christmas presents and then I had to start planning for my first solo Thanksgiving. So I have for you some pictures of what I have been working on. Enjoy!

 I hope you enjoyed looking at what I’ve been busy working on. I know some of my photos aren’t great (I took them with my cell) but you get the idea.
