midlife monday: process

midlife monday: process:
it's good to talk
I'm not very wordy here these days, but I have been exercising them (elsewhere) and my scribbling skills.
Just not blogging about them much.
But I will be bragging soon - in the meantime, here's some work flow of an illustration for a class assignment.

prep photograph

preliminary sketch (Inkscape) with text paths added

Illustration wip

studio portrait Thursday: intentions


An inspiring pile of beads.
I'm leaving my desk cluttered these days, partly in reaction to the rest of the house being so pristine but mostly in the hopes I'll be inspired to start early on my Christmas inventory.
This year I'm only signed up for two craft fairs so far, quite a change from the five of last year. It's somewhat a blessing is life is heading in a slitly different direction these days ... and I'm happy about this, except for the not making much.

Summer good bye

Summer good bye:
copper leaf earrings by Urszula Petrykowska, $50
woven wire earrings by Luci Gimenes, $30

Summer good bye.
"Roses their petals shed.
Apples are turning red ..."

The leaves are turning on the trees and will soon carpet the ground beneath.
Pack away the kayak and lock up the cottage.
Get ready for Fall.
