This is the City Park in Mullan where we are building our house (In Mullan. Not the Park! :). All 1/2 block of it. :) Most of the Trees in the area are in the Pine family so we don't see a lot of color as the Season is changing. That's one thing I do miss about living on the East Coast. This time of year it's just a glorious splash of color. Of course, in another month or so most of our trees will still be green and not dancing naked in the Falls winds . . . :)
Things have been moving a lot faster this last month on our new home since the company that was building the outer shell of it has moved on. That's a very good thing ~ their Time Management (or lack of) issues put us about 2 months behind where we should have been at this point. It does mean though, that I have been spending a lot more time up at the property this month with some of our other Contractors. Also needed to be there for some of our bigger deliveries ~ like the Refrigerator, Washer/Dryer, etc., etc. :) These are currently sitting on our patio since we are so far behind on the inside. The walls where they are to go are only studs at this point. :/ So what that means, here and in the present, is that I have not gotten a lot of Studio time in the last few weeks ~ and that also means not a lot of new work to show you. It's been difficult switching gears back and forth. I constantly find myself, while in the Studio, thinking about what needs to be done at the house, and then while at the house, I'm thinking about the fact that I AM NOT IN THE STUDIO! As the saying goes . . . You can't win for losing . . . :)
Here is some of what I did manage to get done . . .
This is predominantly a blend of Gray Feldspar and Crazy Lace Agate. You can find more information on this piece by Clicking on the Link below:
A LITTLE BARNYARD ATTITUDE
This is just a little guy ~ 4 x 4" and he comes with a Black Metal, Bamboo Style Stand for Display. Those are the Kanji Symbols for Attitude up in the left. I did this in a combination of Ink and Acrylic (used more like watercolor) on a white wood panel. I have a small set-up of Acrylics I can bring with me in our RV so I was experimenting up at the property while waiting for the electricians. :) For more information Please Click Below:
This is a blend of Brass and Batik-ed Bone Beads that are all from Africa. It is complimented with Buri Nut Seeds (South America) and Patikan Wood (Phillipines). Fastens with an easy to open/close Toggle Clasp.
'IF I HEAR THAT ONE MORE TIME . . .'
