can you hear me now?
back in January I selected a word for the year
my plan was to try to stay focused on getting enough work done to apply for "Juried Artist" status with SAQA by the end of the year
with all else that has needed to be handled already in 2016, I'm feeling like that goal is not attainable this year
but I'm going to try to do better in the next few months and we'll see where that goes
the corn stalk is attached and the shading at the edge of the leaves (which I'm doing with InkTense pencils and sticks) is in progress
I still need to add some shadowing beneath the corn and do a little more quilting in some of the "cracks" to finish this one
and I do occasionally sell these pieces, so I'm going to keep doing this too
this one is finished now and listed in my Etsy shop
there has been some additional utilitarian sewing going on too
two more pillows put together for the daybed --- more fabric and pillow fillers out of the studio
(with ulterior motive -- I got the old one for my storage area in the studio!!)
so of course we've had days and days of gray, cool, cloudy, rainy ever since
but this weekend we'll probably be in the 80s -- got to love spring in the Rockies!
we got her a hard plastic wading pool to use when the weather finally gets hot enough -- she had tried to use her outdoor water bowl for a pool -- which just doesn't work
glad to have a big enough deck to set it up on!
