Hello! I'm teaching this class again the first week in December, so you're seeing another version of the same goose on the cover. Since the workshop is in December, I couldn't resist adding some vintage silver trim on some of the pages. The workshop info is here if you would like to take a peek! I still need to add words here and there, a few tiny vintage rhinestones, and bind it all together. Oh, and paint the back cover, but I'm getting close!Beautiful sun print fern made by Elizabeth Woodford.
The wall is silence, the grass is sleep, Tall trees of peace their vigil keep, And the Fairy of Dreams with moth-wings furled. Plays soft on her flute to the drowsy world.~Ida Rentoul Outhwaite Happy Autumn everyone. I haven't been creating much art lately, so my blogging has slowed. Although not creating much with paint in my studio, I've been smothered by daily beauty and Divine paint as I shoot fall color and create with my camera.Summer drew me out of my studio like never before. When I make myself work inside, I pine for nature, worry that I'll miss something beautiful, and it's nearly impossible for me to stay indoors. But as seasons change outside, they seem to be changing inside me as well. Suddenly, I'm able to let go and look forward to all of the lovely in the future instead of focusing on fading flowers and shorter days, and hanging on to every minute of now as tight as I can. It feels good to begin creating in the studio again.Here's a card I made to send my sweet Auntie. It's about 4.5" wide X 11" tall: Wishing you all creative warmth in your studios today.
