First, I would like to say a belated Happy New Year to you all:)! Between spending time in my shop and dealing with a nasty flu bug, blog posting just didn't happen as I hoped it would. My goal was to do more posting in 2014, so I may not be off to the best start here:)
Before the flu bug hit and after our Christmas decor was stored away for another year, I had time to play in my studio. I call it play, because I tend to, totally, lose "track of time" when I am creating in there…even more so, when I am painting…..
….I entitled this piece, "Made in the USA"…..I know it is a bit hard to see, but that label on the galvanized vase just demanded some important signage:) As many of you in the Midwest and East experienced the Polar Vortex, California is experiencing severe drought conditions. Being that we are avid gardeners and no water... painting flowers and adding "Rain" to my prayers will, most probably, be a regular past time for me in the next few months:)
