Summer Color

summer color.......

"stuff", in my opinion cool stuff, art waiting to happen

an art class project from last year - I finally finished it....

treasures from Second Chance in Baltimore,
we went rummaging yesterday - it was a blast 60,000 sf of "stuff" but with no air conditioning in any of the warehouses it was hot!
currently underway

further catching up

a page from my visual journal that resonates and inspites me to keep taking risks with my art and to not be so judgemental about the results. "Not Fear" was a paper from my friend Lesley in the extreme visual journal class we took.

my latest obsession is hinged small canvases, this was the first I tried - I don't love it but in effort not be negative it was a good step towards what I want to create

catching up

Artful Evening project- a decorated cigar box, the interior is covered in "inchies"

assemblage piece made in Michael deMeng's class at Art & Soul in Hampton -the challenge to use stuff my husband was going to toss like the cool box and the broken Delft fruit knife that belonged to my great grandmother


It's cloudy and threatening today, I am hoping to breakthrough my inertia and spend some time in my studio until time to go to a 4th of July BBQ

This is a page from my "extreme visual journal" started in a class with Julianna Coles. Lately I have been stuck in a rut with my color pallete, today I want some of this brightness.


It's July 3rd and we are off to Sherwood Forest tonight, dinner with our best friends and seven months later I finished her Christmas gift....."Deep in the Forest"
