We are in a short stretch of hot weather. One source says it’s currently 90 F (32 C) at 5pm! Just shocking! Perfect weather for G & T’s and a little BBQ. What month are we in?? I thought it was still spring in Oregon, not Texas?!

After spending a few morning hours working outside in the heat, beating back the ever growing grass, the coolness of the studio called my name. Lamp bases are finished and more screens need to be created. Today, I started a working on a new motif incorporating Maple tree seeds. For many years I’ve been wanting to use them for something. Whole clusters have hung from my shelves until I recently tossed them out. Fortunately, there are always more in the neighborhood. I picked up several on a recent dog walk.


Right now, I’m just trying to figure out what works visually and if I’m pulled by the concept or not. There will be numerous seeds over a panel surface. More drawing and experimenting to come.
