fibre friday: the daily pussy

the daily pussy: in camera

Instead of tucking herself under my feet beneath my bench (and getting kicked each time I adjust position), Ms Griz has gratefully accepted my gift of a new basket.

studio portrait thursday: 30may13

On my desk - a watercolour and ink sketch from one of my Wee Guy's drawings.

A perfect start to a new notebook, breaking the tyranny of The First Blank Page.

Creativity and cooperation and parenting.

everything's tentacles these days: unfurling fiddleheads

Today's trail walk with the guys.

fibre friday: finished the moebius wrap!

Yes - it's finished (at last). I need to weave in the ends then block the whole darn thing.

Somehow, I've managed to create stocking stitch for a band. I think I might have reversed the knitting direction???

studio portrait 16may13: what is one hundred?

what is one hundred?, originally uploaded by ebbandflo_pomomama.

This excited and colourful jumble is a WIP for an exhibition.

Yes - I'm making stuff again. Slow start. Experimenting. Feeling my way.

But it's a start.

A colourful start.

new toys mean late night play

...  and no, it's not an adult - themed post so quit smirking.
Yesterday the  Wee Guy and I paid a visit to our fave local arts supply store  Colours (on  Lougheed just before  Metro Ford going east ). He was after more cartooning supplies; I was on a mission for more oil bars.

If you've never used oil bars before you are missing a treat. They are expensive but once you dig into their buttery goodness you will be hooked.

They work like a crayon and like paint. You can draw with them. You can scoop them with a trowel. You can thin them with linseed and use a brush. They mix. They smear. They are full contact art. And they are dry within 3-4 days.

Check out the Winsor and Newton product page for more info.

The sketch shown above was created using cadmium yellow light,  cadmium red dark,  ultramarine and soft mixing white, with synthetic linseed as a diluent.
