Let there be light!

It’s a lovely change to move through a project and actually enjoy the end work. That doesn’t always happen in my brain. It sees all the nicks, imperfections, badly orchestrated portions, and almost never the good parts.Shake n bake my brain in a coating of depression and things really don’t progress well. Eventually, after loads of time,Continue reading “Let there be light!”

Second in the works

The second camas has proven to be more challenging. First off, the paper is much stiffer and thicker than the dress patterns. I had to do quite a bit of prep work on the pages to get them softened up enough. I think one would call it “distressing”. When everything was attached and dried, IContinue reading “Second in the works”

Playing Early

Sunday morning I really needed a quick art fix before heading back down to Eugene. I still have a final hazardous materials removal from the house for sale. I pulled out the wax pot and cranked the heat. A few days ago I created a total of 14 flower buds to work through. Each wire formContinue reading “Playing Early”

It’s been constructed strictly to see if my ideas are feasible and theyContinue reading “Model Camas”

Nothing like learning new frustrating computer stuff while trying to balance art obligations! I’m in a steep learning curve at the moment, it’s bugging theContinue reading “Wax”

Back in town

No emails (well, as of yet) or phone calls to tree cutters (ok, it was only texting… no phone call) siblings or other folks related to the family stuff. Today I went and helped hang work by members of thisContinue reading “Back in town”

Rivers III

Today I finally feel like my body has recovered from last weeks endevors. So, I spent the morning cutting chunks of dried branches for the twigs project… And then proceeded to finish burning and waxing of Rivers III, the commissioned piece. Always dicey during the waxing process but I think it looks pretty good. NowContinue reading “Rivers III”
