Ragging the Dead

When they gave me this complimentary mechanics rag I don't think the good folks at Iron Smoke Distillery thought I would use it as a paint rag.

Magnolias & Crows

Tomorrow is the opening reception.
So many hours in the studio went into this - I feel nervous and over-excited.
Good grief I hope this goes well.

Pomegranate Lover

New little oil painting of a pomegranate.
I made it to fit this lovely Victorian pomegranate carved frame.

It's part of a group of new paintings that are in a one-person exhibition that opens this Sunday, June 3rd, from 2-4 at the Little Theater Cafe in Rochester, New York.

Exciting no? Hell yes!
There will be cookies.

I heart lampworking.

Nuggets of Joy

New big, chunky beads for a charm bracelet.

Started with a black barrel core then added on a little square of silvery dichro.
Heavily encased with clear, transparent teal and transparent grass green.
Finally shaped into faceted nuggets using my trusty stainless steel cheese knife.

I had forgotten how much I like forming the facets on this style of bead.
All the dichro and the divots give them so much sparkle.
