Long Time, No Write

I know, I know... it's been much too long since I've written. What can I say? Life's gotten the better of me this past month! I was busy preparing for our local art association's first ever Studio/Gallery Tour. What a great idea! I'm fascinated by the work of other artists and to be able to view their work space and see how the inspiration and medium come together is wonderful. It was a great experience. And I enjoyed showing off my new digs to local art lovers.

Here's the final product of our weeks of labor and a couple of shots of me working on a bead:

What great fun! I absolutely LOVE my new space and I love working on my torch! Anyway, I've been working on fused glass rings...keep an eye on the website. They're coming soon!

The Studio is Almost Finished!!!

I've spent the past several days working on my studio. It looks incredible. The interior walls are now painted, the trim is painted, the door is painted, the electrical is finished and the siding is almost complete.

Once the air conditioner is installed and my exhaust hood is in, I"ll be all ready to move in. YES!!I can hardly wait! Here's an updated photo.

Quote of the week:

"Men are tatooed with their special beliefs like so many South Sea Islanders; but a real human heart with divine love in it beats with the same glow under the patterns of all earth's thousand tribes." (Oliver Wendell Holmes)
