One Down and One to Go

Monday, September 28th, 2009


I am not sure how I am feeling about this piece. I love the colors. I think it evokes a gorgeous sunset. I had some trouble with my green flash, using just the mica chips, so I ended up embellishing with some glass beads in gel medium. It looks better in person than it photographs.

Here is a detail:


I don’t have time to dwell on this. I learned a bit about adding mica chips. I have to move on.

Next on my agenda is the final 12 X 12 piece in the current round. Terry selected twelve as our theme. I have known what I want to do, but not exactly how. Last night it hit me!! I have already started working on the images as it required quite a bit of computer work. Now I have to decide whether I want to print the images fromĀ  my computer to fabric or to make thermofax screens and print them. I am leaning towards the thermofax screens. I am very excited about my plan. I better be because it has to be done by Thursday morning.

I am bordering on exhaustion. Mr C is not able to do much so I am doing all the dog walking and training, and the work around the house that he usually does – which is quite a bit. I almost had a melt down at the puppy training class yesterday. The exuberant Scooter, who loves all other dogs and any person he encounters, was almost beyond controlling. He weighs well over 50 pounds and just about did me in trying to play with the other dogs and jump up and hug the humans.

Tomorrow morning, I have to take time away from creating to take Mr C back to the Dr’s office to have the catheter removed. I think he will feel much better after that. I am waiting for things to return to normal. I may have forgotten what normal is!! LOL!
