I've been busy busy.. around here we have just had new concrete poured around the house.. with a rather large patio which has triggered massive loads of pots , plants, mulch and soil. It just takes one lovely upgrade to trigger an avalanche of new fabulous changes. The kids are loving zooming around on their skateboards and bikes!
This coming weekend is my first art show this season.. so have been working pretty full on for that.. here is a glimpse of some new pieces..
a mixed media piece with resin on the top..
this one is on a big chunky canvas...
feeling the need to get my hands in earthen clay again. ..I suddenly decided to make some little 'pods' . Inspired by shapes in nature I am really trying to keep their 'made in my hand' irregular look.. highlighting the 'hand hewn' finish as opposed to machine made / molded.. they are not finished or fired in the kiln or glazed yet.. but here is a little preview..
they are so cute for holding earrings, rings or even for spices etc..
Some of you will remember this wee bird :).. I cut out the original watercolor with an xacto knife (scary) and gave it a bit of pizazz ..creating a 3D mixed media piece in a shadow box..fun! ( special bonus.. you can even see me taking the pic reflected in the glass :p )
lots going on.. hope you are all having some fun with your muse!
