In the middle of the coldest Winter in recent memory, I appropriately started off my year by completing another in my series of Grandmother Elemental Shields paintings, Grandmother Ice. It’s painted with Golden Open Acrylics on a circular canvas.
This silverpoint drawing, completed in 2013, Kwan Yin with Chrysanthemums was in the Round Rock TX Drawing Show in the Spring.
I took a wonderful Smalti workshop at the Chicago Mosaic School in the Summer and bought my first hammer and hardy. Now I’m ready to make some new mosaics with Italian Smalti.
Fall is here now, although the temperature has yet to go below 80 degrees here in Texas, and I have some of my jewelry in a show at the Texas Art Asylum, October 17,18 and 19th.
I’ve worked on several other projects, you can see one in my last post, and have even more in the planning stages, so all in all so far 2014 has been a very busy and fun year.
