From the studio this week,


After Easter Breakfast with the family the opportunity presented itself so and the Husband and I set up the tipi.  The poles were good from last year but the adjustment and placement had to be done   We worked at it awhile with a bit of sweet talking.  Thankful he was there to help...I would still be wrestling with it.  
Checked it off my list Related image "Tipi Done"  
A personal project is complete. See the full story here 

This week I will be presenting a Demo for Lemont Artists Guild, Looking forward to it, see details below. 

Happy Hoppy Spring Everyone!
The little critters are burrowing down, little ones will be appearing soon, their so cute.

Quote for the Week

Inner Strengthsm

Inner Strength framed

#041717-A, "Inner Strength” 8 x 8 piece of collage art with a 2” white mat to the final size of 12 x 12 ready for you to slide into a nice 12 x 12 frame.  


Materials Used: 140lb. Watercolor paper, polymer medium, acrylics  painted stamped  Kraft papers, glazing and acrylics, graphite and wax pastel crayons, sealed with a layer of UV satin varnished.


Meaning behind the art: Over the weekend I read something to the effect of these words, “we aren’t the type to break easily,”  Which then brought to mind the many trails the human race have gone through and how when tested we pull from that Inner Strength of Resilience. I’ve also wanted to toy around with the ideas of spirit animals and well this might be the first in a few…
