I haven't painted in - like - forever! Last night I went to WRS and joined in on the Thurs evening pastel studio class. It felt really good to be with a bunch of other people doing what we like to do. Have I ever told you how much I love, just love, the texture you can get with pastels? Soooo luscious.

Rust with shimmer, worn wood with patina, the old, the vintage and the interesting...these are things that I am drawn to and covet in antique stores, estate sales, auctions and junk piles. I have been inspired to create an assemblage for months. Today I gathered some treasures, started altering them a bit and attaching them together. The finished piece measures about 9" long & 6" wide. It looks kind of cool hanging on the wall.

I spent most of the weekend steam cleaning carpets and upholstery - wheeee...lots of fun....but at 4pm this afternoon I started messing around with a gelatin plate that I had stuck in the fridge this morning. I was going after imagery that would evoke remind one of this time of the year. I think I'm going to call this Song of the Shawangunks.
