Saturday WIPs

I'm trying to create good habits which includes blogging regularly... even if I don't really have anything noteworthy to say.

Today I thought I'd share some 'works in progress'. I'm scheduled to show at Impresario Artisan Market in December am hustling now to create some new work.

The piece below is actually done (or almost done) but this is the process shot I took before the final touches. I'll show her off when the group are completed.

Two more pieces waiting for attention. Each of these measures 12" x 16" which is HUGE for me. I usually work very small. People will often say "I didn't realize it was so tiny!" when they see my work. I have no idea if they mean that in a surprised good or bad way :P

Below, is a detail of the blue picture at the top in it's current state. The bees and wasps here are flying about like crazy so I've got buzzy things on the brain.


And finally, here is a tiny detail of one of the other pieces I'm currently working on.

Sometimes it's hard to find the time to create things that are in my head for creation sake and not to meet a deadline of some sort. When I do make things for the sake of realizing a vision and nothing else, I'm in a much better mood and far more productive.

Happy Saturday!
