If you read the journal you know I am leaving Deutschland for six weeks. I’ll be back in September.
It is my plan to have an adventure, or two, to share here. If I’m lucky, I may even have some cool art news or exotic shopping trip.
Back to the point. Things have been shaping-up quite nicely for my painting, as well as my sewing. I was fortunate enough to score one last painting job before I skipped town. It was commissioned for a gift, one that will not be gifted until October. Because of this I will have to keeps its composition a secret. I’m sure you understand. What I can share with you are a couple of new (half-finished) works.
Do you love this as much as I do?
When I complete a painting I usually have a lot of paint left over on my tray. I hate throwing it away. Instead of giving up on it; I use it to paint tiny canvases. I just loved this deep forest turquoise, and I had a ton of it, so I put it to use. Initially I had intended on filling these bubbles with images. I was thinking maybe flowers, or sloshing water, or butterflies. But the more I look at this triptych; the more I want it to stay the same. We’ll see how I feel about it when I get home.
I was enjoy this last minute painting of bubbles so much that I continued on; with more colors.
In Florida Scarf news; I was contacted by a local handmade fair to participate in this year’s show. I was really flattered. They contacted me through Etsy, so I’m sure that’s how they found me. I can’t participate because I won’t be here; but I’m pretty sure my German isn’t good enough yet anyway. It does, however, fuel me to learn the language so I can participate next year. If you are in Ansbach I suggest you check it out; and I suggest you let me know how it is.
