Much love and appreciation to you all!

|Fun experiments with supplies, first with red/orange ink and then water colors.|
|Just water colors|
|Yes, lots of vinyl block prints! Next, crazy fun colors! Thank you Bobi for the Art a Day January Challenge!|
I am hoping I can apply this to the great out doors. I should probably do a few more but my pear was getting too ripe and changing color ;)

|For the month of January, I wove 32 hours, only 96 hours to complete the weaving! I moved the bobbins out of the way for this picture.|

Cards are coming along.
Each is unique, contains at least one copper heart and it's own story. ie, "Totally Bound to You," You, Me and the River" etc.
The 'card' is made from vintage photo album pages and the envelopes from old player piano scrolls.
18 or so prepped thus far.
It was fun. Everyone did such cool things. There is a lot of talent out there. Thank you for inviting me and thanks to all who shared.
Please "like" my page on Facebook. I am trying to get my work out there and that is not an easy thing to do.

The colors are coming through more garish than they really are.
|First the heart shape is cut from sheet copper and sanded. |
Then I draw the jigsaw lines and saw out the connection.

Not so much to refine the finish but to make edges comfortable to the touch

with the encaustics, since Jan 1. I've been working with 3 wood artist and 1 potter interested in adding encaustic to their art, What fun. Jane, the racu potter from Naches, gave me this racu piece and some chips from the firing. Jerry Johnson gave me a bowl he created and left the edge so I could add some encaustic art work, so it is now 12 days into Jan., and I will post some of the art
This has been quite a project Jim, Jerry, John and Jane were here last Wednesday, we worked all day with wax medium. It was a great day. Just finished the bowl today.

Getting to the studio - or not - is part of the process. Greatly appreciating this January kick-start and filling my soul with your work and your posts. Thank you!
Here's an image from years back. Miniature collage Autumn Leaves. Measures about 3" tall. One of my favs and delights me that it is in the care and appreciation of Laura Gable.
Alas, it looks to be a new painting with not much recall of the original study. But I am happy with it. These lovely ponds are tucked in the Amon Basin off Leslie Road. I hiked in a short distance to find this viewpoint. Not much was happening this day, until 2 bicyclists came zooming past and startled me. For the most part it was just me and the water and the ducks and the sage and the rabbit brush and the trees. A lovely soliloquy for a winter's day. Perhaps I will return there again soon to see what nature provides. Softer colors I'm sure.
