Abstract Ikat

I started playing with patterns back in December of last year.  I really like the Ikat pattern and worked on this for quite a while (there must be like 20 layers of paint!).  I thought it was finished for a while, but it seemed like it was missing something.  I figured it out and here's the finished product!  It's always a refreshing challenge to paint outside my "creative comfort zone"~

Fused Glass Class!

A few weeks ago I took a Fused Glass class with artist Jean Cheely at the Cary Arts Center.  I've wanted to work with fused glass for a LONG time and I was just itching to get in there!  I really enjoyed releasing some new "creative energy" and was quite pleased with my projects (for the most part).  Can't wait to take some more classes- I've been stalking the internet for updated class schedules 'round here!  :o)

Brown Beltie

Remember my New Year's Resolutions?  Well, here's the painting that was unfinished on my easel!  Finally done and I just love her!  We took this photo either last spring or summer at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC.  We go there a lot and just tootle around~ :o)  I hadn't seen the brown beltie (Calloway) before and she was kind enough to be in great light for me to get some good shots of her.
