Dry Spell

1 Comment

Gosh, how did almost a month go by?! This title is no accident – it has been a dry, dry spring and summer – tinderbox dry. I don’t do well with hot and dry, being more of a winter Northwest rainy/ summer Northeast jungle creature. 🙂  Creatively, I’m feeling dry as well. This has not been a very productive time, but I guess summer never is; I’m too busy working, and tending my own garden. My internet and phone went down again, and I hurt my back a couple weeks ago and have taken it easy so that I don’t hurt it worse. Back injury seems to happen every July once I start dragging those heavy hoses around. I decided to hire out the watering parts of my jobs, but have not created anything “arty” in that time off… dove into some novels and cuddled with the cat instead!

I painted these little paintings in mid-June. Put them into a gallery. Hoping they will sell, but I need to make more, if I want to have a body of work there. I’m pretty rusty at painting but it sure is fun when I do it, however inconsistently!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I enjoy doing abstract art the most, but it’s good to know I can still fake something a bit more “realistic” if I have to!

I’ve been looking longingly at my fabric stash and wanting to get back to quilting! I gave my little Frida Kahlo quilt to my quilting mentor and friend. She’s such an amazing quilter and artist and if she likes it, I’m honored. And then there’s mosaicing – want to get back to that too!

Sorry my posting has been so infrequent. Will try to post more because it gets me thinking about creating, and feeling inspired.

  1. I love these landscapes and the more recent abstract. They celebrate the real intensity of unfiltered nature.
