Petite Pointsettia on Point


My two year old potted pointsettia has morphed from a show-offy floozie to a prim ballerina.  I have fed her nothing but health food, no fat, which is probably why. Both her incarnations have been lovely, but another reduction in size next year will qualify her for a part in an opera with a very sad ending.

Santa's Baby

My Fickle Santa can't keep his hands off the Mantle Mermaid this year.  Every Christmas he has a new love. Go, Santa!!!

Mr. and Mrs. Noah Neptune have put all the animals to bed and are waiting for Santa who is trying to get the Way-Too-Big elephant to board the Ark.  What will happen next?

Christmas Card 2013..

"and it came to pass...

"…for one star differeth from another star in glory" Corrinthians 15:40:42

 The starlight the Wise Men saw is compared to the light from the satellite that has 'come to pass' in our time.  How wise are we now?

A Lotta Trees!

I took a lesson from Jean Seley and turned this painting into a card.  I like it!  Have always liked cards, but the practice of sending them seems to have fallen away.  After all these years I'm finally "an old fashioned girl".

Yesterday's Sketch Crop

Went to paint with Jean at Tweet Street, then to lunch at a charming corner restaurant, Queenstown Pub, with decor galore: artistic, clever, eclectic.  Sat in the front window and sketched a piece of the Firehouse Museum across the street.

Dremel Workshop

Just spent two days learning how to use my Dremel tool for various applications: On copper, wood, glass, mirror, tile, metal and more.  We drilled and etched and scratched and burred for fourteen hours of excessive noise and good artist fun.  You should have seen what some of the talented women created but I won't show it because, well, here's my stuff:

Copper, Wood, Glass, Mirror, Tile, Rusty Metal

We made little books to store the CD sized squares of material:

Mirror (with me holding camera, of course)

It warn't easy!!!
