my art diary or how to make (or at least think about making) art while spending quality time with the day job, family, friends & dogs (not in any particular order)

first, garden shots. the marigolds are volunteers- first i've had that happen-
clematis happily blooming
i remembered that i had all of this needlepoint yarn a few days ago. lots of colors, unfinished projects ( probably forever- it's been 10 or more years), so i thought i'd see about incorporating them into my mixed media somehow.
which worked out for this piece. i drilled through the canvas (using my new drill bits, oh boy!) to make the holes for the yarn. i like this way of attaching the coins much better than glue and the horizontal red works well with the rest of the piece (imho). 8x8
this is done too, i think. 6x6 mixed media, made with papers from the frottage class.
this may need a bit more, but is closer, also with papers from the class, also 6x6
i just about have my inches of new art for August, and Tuesday night to finish up, should be in good shape.
gallery membership meeting tomorrow night, hopefully not too traumatic :)
