one image inspiring

I had so much fun creating from Lani's photo that I made 2 more! Actually, I needed to figure out how to work with the photo in the Elements photo programs, so went for some tutoring to the Apple store, and learned. After that, I could not resist working on the photo again. Made 2 different images but was in such a hurry to mail them off for the deadline, that I neglected to take a photo of both of them. The process was exciting and loved the challenge. I am off to Houston, TX tomorrow to pick up my husband's 85 year old Aunt who recently lost her husband. It will be a quick overnight, then back home to settle her in. Maybe I can get her to do some art work in my studio??? That would be great. off and running..................

It feels good...

to complete a work of art. Just finished a post card size art work for one of my Yahoo groups, "14 Secrets"....an altered post card of one image. It was a lot of fun to work on...sure did stretch my imagination. The weather is becoming cooler and it is Autumn in New England. The air is crisp and it feels good to make soup! I am looking forward to cool nights and very comfortable sweater days.

Carton Creations

On Friday and Saturday, I worked on creating and filling 2 cartons for Art in a Carton mail swap run by Susan J. Letham. I am having so much fun and have one more carton to create. I never thought decorating wax milk cartons, along with filling them with art projects would prove to be so much fun. Looking forward to receiving cartons in the future to get more ideas and continue the fun.

Room Hermit

I am becoming an art room hermit, spending most of my day in my new art space. I am keeping busy making art for the "Art in a Carton" swap, having received a lovely carton from Susan J. Letham from Germany. Displayed in the photo below are the items from Susan. I have her first carton complete and will package it for mailing on Monday morning.

Using my artist space

I worked with my new client for the first time in my new art space. It was a pleasure to offer a safe, pleasant, and art-filled environment in which to play. I am looking forward to rewarding and healing hours in this sacred space, for myself and for those I work and play with.
