Thinking about the past weekend

I visited Dianne Schullenberger's studio last Sunday.  Her work is phenominal.  Her studio had an amazing aura of creativity.  So, I took some pictures to take home with me as a souvenir.  I want to keep the feeling of that space with me, to use it as a guide for my studio.

Hearing her talk about her process, and the freedoms she allows in her creativity made me realize that I approach my work and my life a little too sternly.  I need to open up more, to play, create, & celebrate.

Hopefully some of this will rub off on me into my life and process....  In the meantime, I think about when I can visit her gallery again.

Fantastic Weekend

 The SAQA Weekend was even better than I expected.
 I am really happy to be an active part of this group.

We did so much, my mind is spinning.

I can't write much now, but thought would share these images from Dianne Schullenberger's Studio

The middle picture is a close up of one of her fiber creations.
I will write more tomorrow!

Tuesday, March 8, 2011


Today was bright sunshine, blue sky and a magical icy wonderland outside!  It was so amazing out I took pictures with my cell phone!  I just had to record it.
The sunshine helps to keep my spirits up.
Moving ahead with my book, the sketchbook challenge and my journal.

A Rainy Sunday

monoprinted and commercial fabrics combined

“Never sell your hen on a rainy day”
It's March and already the month is getting away from me. Mud season has started with a major thaw.  The rain is pelting softly on my skylights.  The snow has a withered look.
Thoughts of moving ahead with many projects are weaving their way through my mind.  Now for action.  We are entering a new storm watch for snow, rain, sleet, and overall yuckiness.  It's time to sequester myself in my studio and forget about the outside elements.

Being sick

Ah!  It's not fun being sick.  I have contracted the virus my daughter had last week.  Slight fever, lethargy, runny nose, irritability.  I have been sleeping for two days now, going on three.

I think I am finally sick of snow, too.  Yesterday, while in my drowsy, achy state, I peered out the window at yet more snow coming down from the sky.  The piles (or should I call them mounds) of snow are so tall, you can't see anything, and it's dangerous to go around a corner in an automobile.  The landscape has changed dramatically here, and I really cannot wait for Spring to claim itself.

Illness has made me cranky and I have fallen behind on some things.  I hate that.
Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day, huh?  I hope so.
