Journey Items

Here they are! Photos of my doll and traveling suitcase. She is my travel Guardian Angel, Lavenda Kakabelle, Angel of the Moon, who resides in the Stars and Constellations. The suitcase is a wicker picnic basket that will hold the articles that will be part of the year long journey. I have yet to make the journal and small journal inserts that will be placed in the suitcase. What fun I am having.

Traveling Artists' Guild

I am very pleased to be a part of a new group offered by Susan Letham, an English artist who lives in the north of Germany. She has designed a year's worth of Imagi-Nation activities for artists, which will begin in October. I (and many other artists who have joined this Traveling Artists' Guild) are excited and busy gathering materials and making their "boxes" to place the pieces of art and writings and other items made and/or collected on this journey. It will be a fantastic experience, I am sure of it.

Nifty Ned

This is Ned, my granddaughter, Krystal's, toy pup. He is a Cavalier King George Spaniel and I love him. Such a good boy and a real joy. I am Ned-sitting for several days this week and I can't wait.

Tis a glorius day

Perfect! It seems that all has "speeded up" and I can't catch my breath. Lots of things going on and art time is suffering. Everything is there, just need to sit down and do it!

Gallery sitting tomorrow from noon to 4 pm. Will take my wool needle felting supplies and create something while there. Lots of action at the 14 Secrets blog..... great things going on.

helper to hang

What a surprise! My husband, Bob, agreed to visit the gallery with me and helped to hang paintings. He set a time limit (2 hours) before leaving, and did a great job. The reward was a "lestina" pizza for lunch at Bertucci's. We both had a good time, and it felt good to help out. The gallery opening is going to be delayed due to more work needed to be completed such as lighting. It certainly will be worth the wait.

Going back to the gallery today to help complete the hanging. A good experience and much learned. The art is beautiful and looks great. I am happy to be a part of this group. The opening will be delayed, but it will look spectacular when all is said and done.

Spent the day from 9 am to 4:30 pm hanging pictures in Gallery 131 and still not finished. Will return tomorrow to complete hanging all of the works with other help. I learned a lot today about measuring and the correct way to hang artworks. The opening will be delayed, as more work needs to be done in the gallery.
