Chicks Rule and Much More.......

12" x 12" mixed media on panel

well, apparently i am back at square one figuring out how to do this colour thing....since i got a new laptop....my old laptop was seriously under-rammed, so doing pretty well anything on the computer took sooooooo long.....but alas, i must learn a new system, cause i bought a mac.....recommended by 3 super talented, artsy friends of mine....it's a whole new world for sure.....

 anyway, as you can see, i am cooking up chickens in my kiln ....lots of 'em actually....in bowls, platters, teeny tiny little friendship gems, and also, sculptural pieces as shown below....i have not named her yet....i'm thinking something like "betsy"....................she has 3 blue eggs she's about to lay.....                 

and then, 2 of my images have just disappeared....so.... arghhhhh......moving on, the next image is a tiny little mixed media piece....this piece describes me perfectly...."homebody".....i love my little home and studio tucked away in the forest.....and  the next pic is this great little vintage chair that i bought at a garage sale last weekend....and i just LOVE it....stacked on it are colourful jars of glass frit...this is crushed glass...and i will show you the little gems that i made with frit next time....and then next up is another shot of of a chicken bowl....the flowers beside it were given to me by a good good friend of mine.....and the little pitcher the flowers are in is one that i made when i took a glassblowing workshop several years ago.....and then i discovered fusing, a perfect fit for my personality.. .....and now i am discovering mixed media......yay, i love them both, and they are sooo different (more on that in another post)........but the same sensiblities come through, colours and imagery i am attracted to.....as you will see when i figure out how to do this again and can post more paintings......

new chair and jars of frit
"home body"  6" x 6" wood panel 

so, yah, i am finding this blogging and mac computer stuff much more difficult and technical than glass fusing, which is actually quite technical in itself......but i am determined to learn this cause i am really loving sharing with you all in this way...especially my mixed media pieces coming up...next post....stay tuned
