First, good news:  I made my first sale while I was on the Cape!  Hooray!  Winter Wonder now has a loving home in Cummaquid. And I began my search for possible places to market my art.

While I was away, Bill was a sweetheart and built 2 (4 x 4) raised beds for me so I’ve been very busy (ouch, my back!) planting them up with tomatoes and herbs.  I’m also trying to make the front area by the mailbox look better…only time will tell after I labored with love.  Weeding the flower beds was a heroic effort because last year I was a neglectful gardener.

…which now makes me a neglectful blogger…stay tuned, though.  I’ve had some computer problems – freezing up on me every time I tried to do something and I have oh so many photos to process and share with you, especially about the workshop I attended.  Alas, the problem is now resolved.  I’m pretty sure it was my mouse.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
