I do have two cats...

Baby Cakes seems to always be doing something cute when
I have the camera, but the other day Fuzzy Bucket really outdid herself
(which is saying something!)
I came into the bathroom and Fuzz was under the rug

I waited for her to come out, but she did not so I took another picture of her under the rug

And then I almost missed her making her escape.

Jan Phillips is my mentor. We have drifted out of communication and when I went looking for her, I found the following, a recitation of her Artist's Creed. Please listen and enjoy

Moving On

Now that my relief printing class is over, I have several projects that need completion.
I attended a great workshop given by my friend Pamela, and we wrote cinquain poetry. I offered to make books with the poetry, and two of the attendees accepted. These are the books that I created. They are triangular accordian books, wrapped in wrapped pipe cleaners.

This is the book on the left, opened out.

And the book on the right.

Since I have to mail this, I am making
(click here for instructions) or
One is complete, and the other is opened and creased.
Note: legs are Babycakes (see below)

Here are the final prints from my relief print class. We were working on Chine Colle, but my results were not what I expected. I tried using fabric on all of them, and I think that was part of the problem. I like the process, and will have to work on the fabric angle.
Great class, and I plan to take more classes from Carol Sanchez

Rainbow Artist's Meeting

I am rejoining a group of artists called Rainbow Artists.
We made collage tonight, and I went totally unprepared! All that I had was a sheet of copy paper, magazine pages and some gloppy Elmer's glue! Not bad for making do!
