It is spring and it is Easter. I just finished this and now I'm going to start special dinner preparations....to include lobster tails and scallops, wild rice and asparagus....life can be good!
Thoughts, musings and randomness from a woman whose passions infringe on her life in the everyday world. "Yes, honey....dinner will be ready soon."

Got these nifty double mats complete with backer boards and archival sleeves. I like how it presents the 8x10" abstracts. Meanwhile...plans are getting firmed up for a short getaway to NYC in May. Where will we stay? The quintessential embodiment of bohemian - the Chelsea Hotel (nope, can't call it the Hotel Chelsea). Fun, fun, fun.

It's funky, it's fun and it's interesting - in person - it makes you look and look. Renaissance of Wonder. Made from a vintage cigar mold, secret potions in test tubes, paper images, Grolsch beer caps (yep, enjoying the contents of one now), antique wooden dowel and compass sphere. It looks very cool hanging on a wall. Maybe I'll bring it to my day job and put it in my office. Most everyone there doesn't understand me as it is....good to keep the mystery going.

Going to the hardware store NOW to get some muchly needed attachment items...also need 2 bottles of a certain beer (more on that later)...hope to have this finished today....have - what I think is - a great idea for a sculptural element at the top...stay tuned.

After one of my assemblages was accepted for publication in a book Seth Apter is writing for North Light Books I seem to have found renewed enthusiasm for this medium. This morning I began casting secret potions for inclusion in a piece that was - in part - inspired by these words from a Ferlinghetti poem ".....and I am awaiting perpetually and forever a renaissance of wonder." Stay tuned for further updates....

This one took me 6 friggin' hours to get to a point where I could even stand it! Ugh, why do we artist type of people do this to ourselves? I think I'm going to do a nice simple pastel painting next. These abstracts are sucking the life out of me.
Meanwhile....as I was in abstract hell....my friend Melanie was across the work table from me quietly going about the business of creating some great layered collage papers. I think she let out a couple of suppressed giggles while listening to my lunatic rants about the abstract I was creating.
