wiener like me and have been waiting for killer snow AND warmer temps. The thermometer says 12 degrees this morning… brrrr!
There’s an octopus
at Katie’s Gallery now –one of my favorite subjects to make. Maybe it’s because I’ve been dreaming about tropical bodies of water, to warm my old bones –mmm, a girl can only dream. It’s a larger seascape sculpture about 6’ long, plasma cut and welded steel with enamel painted finish. I embellished the sculpture with Czech glass beads strung on reclaimed copper wire. Even though these larger sculptures have not been selling as fast, I still like to have a few at the Gallery for sale. I mainly delivered a half dozen smaller metal sculptures
under $165 to Katie’s last week that seem to be selling very well.
My entry “Lead Dog” for the Quilted Raven’s “Mush-On” Quilt Challenge is finished. The deadline is next Friday and I ended up making a whole other entry because the first Dog I looked rabid! I wasn’t happy with his eyes or the finishing stitching I was doing on the first one –arrrgh. I’ll have stiff competition, my friend Ann C. shared her entry with me yesterday –WOW is it cute!! I'll take pictures of the entries and post next week. After forwarding the entry information to the Alaska SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Assoc.) group and they posted the challenge on their Blog. Hopefully, there will be lots of entries, the more the merrier to brighten up this LOVELY & long, cold winter.
