days 4-15

Here are days 4-15; but I still have about a week's worth of days to catch up.  Day 6 began while I was on vacation.  Being away limited what I could use, so I worked primarily with colored pencils, scraps of fabric, and found objects.  It was interesting to see how fewer resources made me have to think more about composition than about color and texture, which is what I always tend to focus on.  Now, I will try to catch up to the present date of the challenge during the next few weeks, as well as work on new pieces for a show that will be held at The Chestnut Hill Chiropractor's Office during the month of September.

been away but now am back

I was away at the Cape for a a week or so and have been really inspired to create some new pieces.  While there, I took a lot of photographs and am looking forward to incorporating them into my work.  We also visited some galleries and saw some really beautiful work by several artists--oh, and if anyone has a chance to climb Pilgrim's Tower in Provincetown, you should defintiely do so.  What a view--and I am afraid of heights!  In addition, I have continued with the 100-day challenge and will post the pictures tomorrow.  For now, I just wanted to let whoever reads this that I am back and look forward to hearing from you.  Take care!

So here are days 2 and three.  I am starting to enjoy making things that have no purpose other than to be created quickly and impulsively.  I am already thinking of how I can transform these little "scribbles" into larger works.

Tree - Cloth Paper Scissors

Tree - Cloth Paper Scissors

joining an art challenge!

So, I decided to join an artist challenge from Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine's website.  I am a little nervous, but think the structure of having to create a 3x5 art piece every day for 100 days might provide some good fodder for new pieces, not that I don't have a few in the pot right now, but, hey, why not add more spices to the stew?!  I will post the challenge pictures on both blogs, mine and CPS's.  now, I just have to get started!

Snake Chain Scarab

Snake Chain Scarab Necklace
The chain is a variation of  an off-loom beading technique that I designed while visiting a friend who lives in DC.  I was just sitting at her table an playing with beads while talking and came up with this fun chain that I have used in many different variations.  So, thanks Stephanie for the inspiration!  I sold the necklace last December, but still love the vibrant colors.
