January Studio Time

January 18, 2011

January has been filled with rain, snow, ice and a couple of warmish sunny days. Perfect weather to be working indoors on art projects.  The Art About Ag show is my main creating focus for the next couple of months. With any luck, project #1 might be completed before the community open drop date on January 29th. Having it out of the studio could free up some space. It still has a long ways to go, but at least it’s moving in the correct direction.

Here are some photos of what’s brewing…

Creation space: table full of dried plants, cut paper, drawings & ideas.

Plant drawing ideas:

Some initial  cut paper silhouettes: pine needles,  dried foxglove stem, dried thistle heads

4″x4″ screen squares: filbert cut paper trial

Next project ideas brewing: How do I turn this into something cool? I had been waiting for it to drop at Peavy Arboretum. One wet, windy day I found it near the lower pond. Yippee! Just wish there had been more paper surrounding the egg cases. That’s what I’m really after. Had to dry it out in the oven and now it stinks. Earthy-old paper sort of smell.

    love the pine needle shadows.
    That old hive will be fun to play with.

      There are so many cool shapes out there. Ponderosa needles have been my most challenging cut yet.
