Seedpods and Tests

May 6, 2015

Slowly, things are emerging on the full page spread, starting with pencil and eventually moving into color. I pulled out a magnolia seedpod and urchin test (yes, that’s the official name for the shell). Both of these items spend a most of their time situated directly below my computer screen, an area that is deemed safe. So far the cat hasn’t whacked them off the desk, nor has the dog attempted to consume them. Fingers crossed that I keep the door shut while I’m not in the studio.

I also spent a bit of time cutting a bird today. It seemed a shame to let the blue paper go to waste. Now all it needs is a frame, light and acrylic. High time to pull out the power tools and make a mess in the clean garage!

      Thanks Rebecca! Yes, saying I was “cutting a bird ” probably didn’t sound the best, but I’m glad you read further and saw the image. 😀

    Love sea urchins and now I know it is called a test. It’s funny how satisfying it is to work in a nicely cleaned place and make a whole new mess. Karen

      I’m working through multiple parts of the house to make life feel better. 🙂

    Looking good Gale – you have chosen objects I particularly like! I had no idea the urchin shell was called a ‘test’. Learn something new every day!
