Easter has come and gone and spending time with the family is always great, especially when it comes with candy and a big dinner! It’s also great to get back into the studio.
My day started with a lovely glimpse of spring–my redbud tree is right on the brink of blossoming!
Half-finished pieces laying around are driving me nuts! I get part way done and need to wait for something so then I start on something else and then go back to another one that’s been waiting. I guess I have a multi-track mind, or at least way of working…
I managed to finish up two pieces today, so it was a win-win day! This piece made me make it bigger than I intended it to be! I’m much happier with it now and best of all, it’s done!
This detail is all the bigger the piece was going to be…
We are both happier now.
The beading got finished on this piece, too. It hasn’t told me it’s name, yet, though, so maybe it’s not really done! I’m always wondering now if the small pieces I’m making will look better if they are placed on a bigger background, just like the above one…don’t know….
My inspiration was the large bead, but I also loved the silk plaid and the silk fragments. It seemed that all the parts of this one came together very serendipitously. I just need to be sure it’s really done.
Display decisions continue to be a mystery to me. There are so many options and I just don’t know if I want to try and standardize a “look” or just keep them individualized, which will take longer, of course. And why would that stop me? It’s just the actual decision making that I’m bad at!
Looking forward to another happy day working in the studio tomorrow…
