Peace (be still)

Strange are these days.  I have been self quarantining but that is normal for me because I am an introvert by nature.  No big deal.  But I actually feel bad for those whose lives are abruptly edited.  I do not like that at all because it’s not fair.  But fair or not,  it’s not forever.  It’s difficult to stay put when someone tells you to stay put.  I want to do the opposite,  (It’s the rebel in me). Now it feels weird when I go out,  like I’m going to be questioned at the grocery store or the post office. …

Rainyness

Today was an amazing day, weather wise.  We wont talk about the “plandemic” news. But it was a moist day with sporadic soft rain here and there.  The smell of the desert was nurturing.  The cloud covering set a mood.  My plants loved it. And I could have stayed in my garden all day but alas…. This week I am getting ready for the Tucson Museum of Art Spring Artisan Market.  Starts the Friday the 13th, ends Sunday the 15th.  10-5 each day. It’s on the street folks.  Open air festival.  No need to worry.   I have hand sanitizer….

A Glimmer of Light

I wanted to savor this moment and reflect on the past few months…that all began in late fall.  A project.  A custom order that is finally being sent off this week. The project between two very busy parties, me and the client. Honestly, I have never had a small custom order last as long as this did.  Through my busiest time of the year, we worked together bit by bit to see it completed.  (Remind me never to take a mural order again in October). So I wanted to document and share the process from beginning to (my) end. It…

Angels in July

I am offering another Small Sculpture Clay class series.  This time we will tackle the human form of an Angel.

Some people might look at my work and see spiritual components.  It’s true, my work is inspirational….

Gently gliding into summer

I know it is still spring but Tucson is an exception.  However, the wicked triple digits have been staying off for a longer pleasant spring. I have been thoroughly enjoying the gardening/ wild flowering/ cactus blooming season in my tiny back yard.  I am surrounding myself with nature while I work on mosaic tile projects… (to be shown soon.  Bees, hummers, butterflies, families of Finches and Verdins  have a safe haven right here.  The littlest joys bring inspiration to my art creations. And I just have to say, Congratulations to my daughter, Shauna and her partner, Ryan, for giving birth…
