Contemporary Art

Well this is a sneak peak of the art piece I've been working on. It is a re purposed salad bowl that Michael has had sitting around for years, the shape of which I fell in love with. This is just the basic structure as I have a lot more to do. Some paint and paint effects, then lots and lots of work with needle thread and some beads.

Now, a couple of weeks ago I was working on a little tag and whilst Michael was having a look I said "Oh it's not finished yet", my dear hubster said ........... and I quote "Oh I know that, there's no bling on it!!!" It feels good to have my life partner know me ohhh soooo well lol!!

So I guess regarding the bowl I will just say ........ It's definitely not finished yet ;o))

Starting over .....

Well I've tried this before, some periods I've been more successful than others, but hey, if at first you don't succeed .....

My aim really is to share all things creative here. It could be paper, fabric or something else, who knows what! I will try and link my old defunct blog because although some it feels like a whole other lifetime ago, there are some creative things on there that might be worth sharing.

OK so here goes ................... first I just want to share a picture, not fantastic quality as it was just snapped with my cellphone (oh how quickly we assimilate, what happened to the mobile ;o). I was feeling might homesick on Christmas day and took a long walk on the local beach. It was cold; freezing! Later that day we got a lot of snow (well masses for the coast of Virginia!). I came across this and it made me smile, another one of those times when I really did think ......"Only in America".
