Today is a beautiful rainy spring day in Seldovia. A little wind, a little sun and here and there some sprinkles of rain.
I am making some homemade soup and finishing up some artwork. I am so glad you stopped by..please get yourself a cup of coffee and join me in my kitchen studio.
I have a regular studio upstairs ...but to tell you the truth..my kitchen table is where I do most of my art....with a cup of coffee and good friends stopping by to chat. Sit down and stay awhile..I am never too busy for company!
Ok...these are the beginning photos of the moon challenge. I really learned a lot and I really like my moon. She is serene and I call her "Grandmother Moon".....she is old and wise and watching over us.
I think I will do another....just because I want to do some sculpts to go on them.
Here are some photos of the moon project as I worked on it. I really enjoyed the challenge and learned a lot about solving problems as they come up. Well I guess I haven't downloaded my photos yet....hmmmmmm. I must be slipping...well ....then...tomorrow I will work on my blog and post lots of photos. Good night....23* it has warmed up some....
Well ...today is the day. The Christmas tree is finally coming down. I could actually wait until Easter...but.....so far my children and grandchildren haven't actually said anything but....I know it's coming....
Time to put it away for another year. I leave it up for a long time because so much work goes in to it and winter is so dark....it just brightens up an otherwise dark time of year. But the days are getting longer and I am wanting to start some garden seeds....so I need the space. Goodbye old friend for another year....see you on the 2nd of December....
Today it is windy and cold. 18* with a northwind blowing, feels like it could suck the life right out of a person.
Yesterday was the Valentines Day Craft Fair......this time of year the Craft Fairs are very slow but it is nice to get together with the other crafters and share what we all have been doing in each of our crafts. We had a few of our regular supporters and we are so grateful for their braving the cold to come out and see what we have to offer and shop.
I have been working on a moon sculpt for a challenge on the BPCSG and I really like the way it has turned out.
Everyone who entered a moon in the challenge did amazing stuff.....some have such a funny sense of humor .... the idea was given the same to each person...but what they did with it made it so individual....creativity is such an amazing gift.
Well I am going to use my moon as a base for another piece so I did not get too far out there with the color or decoration. I really like the face and how the surface of the moon turned out.
I am an Alaskan born artist, living in a small rural alaskan fishing village. I have 6 wonderful children and 15 grandchildren all of whom are bright, beautiful and very talented. I admire anyone who makes handmade items. The traditional crafts that were so important years ago, were beautiful as well as useful.
I also am the oldest of a very large family. 6 brothers and 1 sister....My sister lives in Fairbanks...one brother lives here in Seldovia...one in Tampa...very spread out family....but love them all.
