Getting Ready



I'm coming up for air...seems like my life is on full speed with no break until February. I knew January would be a busy month at work and I geared up for it mentally, but too many late nights working catches up. I finally took yesterday to spend a nice relaxing day with my Sister and just do whatever...that is hard for me as I have a few shows coming up that I need to get ready for. It was nice though and today I was ready to get back to the studio with a better focus.

Here is a photo of what I've been working on and some of the tools I use. I didn't realize how much work was involved in making these. My goal is to have 40 ready for Artfest vendor night, but we'll see. As they progress, I'll upload more photos. Lots of ribbon and silver will follow...As I work on these, so many more ideas pop into my head. I've promised myself that I will finish these and then a new series will begin..I can't wait.

Back to work now....

Really beautiful work Lorraine! I love the one with the houses. Would you be willing to trade (or sell)? Maybe your artfesters could do with one less?

Shoot--now I really wish I was going to be at Artfest this year! I know how difficult it can be to keep up with a day job and feed your personal, creative life at the same time. Keep up the good work! xo, Tonia

Those are fab! Do you have a description on how you work w/the materials and achieve the coloration?
