When she transformed into a butterfly the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings. _Dean Jackson

Wrinkles

Monday, June 10th, 2013

More show up on my face every year. Some say one should be proud of wrinkles as it shows a life rich with experiences and history. That is true, but I’d rather not have them :b I started thinking that I wanted to make some figures that have wrinkles and still look beautiful, I’d call it sublime if pulled off. Not sure that I have or not, but this is one of the wrinkles pieces.

Cut down all of the lettuce about seven heads left, all having bolted :( bummer. I retained the core and plan to try and move them to a shady spot. I love going out back and picking dinner. The tomatoes are doing great and are taller than I. I planted a variety, some grape tomatoes, heirlooms, yellow, romas and I can’t remember what else, there are so many different kind.

There is going to be so many that i will have to jar them or give them away.

My dear husband has been preparing steel cut oatmeal for us in the mornings. This morning he brought me this bowl full and said “you are the almond, in a moat, surrounded by sugar and cream! Ha, I am sure he meant my belly! 😀 that is a smalllll pat of butter, don’t judge me…

This is my most recent finished painting:

Heart on a String

Friday, January 25th, 2013

orange heart
This piece took a week to complete, she required many layers and repeated drying efforts (in the oven since there is no sunshine the past week). She also required sanding and I like the contrast between the smooth face with its subtle tones and the body with its heavy texture. There is an option to add legs which I do think I will do.
