Whoa, we are experiencing our first crazy weather since we moved in last month. It’s been between 97-108 degree heat . Awoke Sunday and Monday to thunderstorms. Abe the cat didn’t enjoy any of it.
In the excitement of having my studio mostly set up, I started collaging on the new mail box. I cut up an old sketchbook and also painted on some blank pages which helped me weed out the dried up paints. As my custom- the photos tell the story.
I don’t know if I mentioned it here, I worked part time at a locally owned art supply store. There is where I received an updated education on art supplies. It also where I was first inspired to embroider the skulls. I had no idea there were so many acrylic mediums or how to use them. I spent every penny I earned buying everything that appealed to me. In unpacking, I’m still finding unopened pens and painting supplies. Happy for the employee discount. It seems whenever I took a break from being a teacher, I found jobs where I was the student- learning to decorate cookies and selling art supplies are examples.
I am confessing that the mailbox hasn’t turned out as I hoped. That’s what I get for rushing into it without an over all design.
When it was too hot to be inside, I started decorating one of the 2 sheds that are in side yards here. I started with one box of the wood tiles and had to stop until we uncover the other boxes of wood tiles.
It might’ve been Saturday or Sunday that I decided to spend most of the 106 degree weather in the air conditioned bedroom. I was actually glad to be confined as it gave me a opportunity to work on my website in anticipation of TEDxMarin (hit me up for a spesh invitation), prepare for Open Studios and finally, a chance to work on “Augustine’
That is all my latest news. Thanks again for checking out my blog!
