my good friend fay has been in town for a few days & it's been wonderful to spend time with her. when i was moving things out to the studio i found the parts of the piece below, which i meant to make as a gift for her a few years ago. i don't know what happened. but i finished it today. it is oil & copper leaf with a transfer. 4x4.
fay helped me organize the studio while she was here. she & carolyn both helped this afternoon. even after cocktails at lunch ( and a few more while working) it was lots quicker to have them help so i didn't overthink where everything should go. tools go with the tools, damnit!
my husband gave up awards points to get me the ipod speakers, so i'm all set on music- very important! carolyn donated the basket.
full studio tour to come.... i can't wait to play!
and the daily doodle- made while listening to three of my favorite storytellers tell stories.
what a lovely day!
