Random thoughts as I meander through various endeavors.

ART INSPIRATIONS - TWO WEEKS WORTH
Here are the art inspirations for two weeks - I missed the one last week. It must have been about deadlines. So, the first one - From the Heart, I'm not too sure of, see previous post about emotions. But the deadlines - It really works! If I have a deadline it works! So, wonder how I can combine the two? They seem to be counter to one another. But perhaps not!
The Florida Tropical Weaver's Guild's annual conference had her as a workshop instructor. We wove with metal and wire. We shaped copper, colored it in a flame, formed balls of red and of black on copper wire, and did some pounding & bending. Above are the results. It was fun!!
I saw a new technique - tried it and here's the result. After painting interfacing & ironing it on, I'm not sure the process is worthwhile - maybe painting right on the fabric makes more sense? But I do love the colors!
