Well, as usual, time has lapsed between posts! December flew by with lots going on. On top of hosting Christmas parties and finishing up the holiday shopping, I also started River Runners at Sunday River again. I missed my kiddos so much. They really aren’t kiddos anymore though, a few of them might be taller then me pretty soon. Pre-Teenagers…….oh jeez, lots of energy and lots of socializing. Should be a great season, I just wish we had more snow! Please?!
For holiday gifts, I made my girlfriends each a piece of artwork and some cute ceramic miniature houses. It was so much fun to settle into the creative process for a few weeks. I also left all my materials scattered around the apartment. I don’t have a studio space to work in. I set up shop on the kitchen island and that means I have to pick up after myself after each session. Very annoying when you aren’t really done with a project. So, for the holiday madness, I decided to ignore the mess and the anxiety I feel around it for a couple weeks so that I could get some things done. It also helped to have a deadline!
The above picture is just one of the 9 pieces I made. I went with a theme about women and the courage to believe and live our lives fully. I used various mixed media techniques and lots of various materials. My favorites were my Zig writer pens, Copic pens, Golden acrylics, and various stamps.
