Out and About.....

I found this growing in my son's front yard under the pine trees. From a distance I thought that is was a pumpkin growing, it's hard to tell from this picture but it stands about 8" high and it was about 5" in diameter. Anyone know what kind of mushroom it is?
Pop and the little man had a great time on this swing, such a sweet idea!
My sister and her husband have two goats, two pigs and two dogs so far...they are really filling up their little farm. She wants to learn how to make soap, I can't wait to test it out!

A visit to Dia:Beacon.



A few weeks ago when my younger son was in for a visit, we spent a few hours at the Dia: Beacon. A contemporary art museum in Beacon, NY which is a small city along the Hudson River.



I love this pathway!
















So many light filled areas.



The building itself was originally used as manufacturing plant producing Nabisco boxes.


 



The architecture is as amazing as the art within.






If you are in the Northeast and haven't visited yet, you should!
If you are planning a trip any time in the future, make sure to put this as a stop.

Feline House Guests

Isabelle on the left and Crush on the right.
Brother and sister kitties that belong to my son and daughter-in-law.
This is how they spend most of their days, lounging around in various spots in the house.
Wish that I could sleep this well!

It's been awhile.....

since my last posting here. 


The summer flew by and it was a busy one!


Lots of family time...
 
 
 
and jumping in muddy puddles!
 
 
 
Now that it's autumn and back to a regular schedule (of sorts, lol)
I am busy listing and creating and getting my show schedule firmed up.
 
The Bone Sisters are currently keeping me very occupied.
 
They adore posing for photos...




 
 
and traveling......


 
 
and a day out!
 
 


Enjoy your day!

The Package

I put so much thought and effort into packaging my products.

I want everything to look professional, yet handmade.
I want it to look "gift-able" and special.
I want it to be reasonably priced so that I don't have to increase my costs.
I want it to be easy to put together so that it's not too time consuming to assemble.
I want it to protect the product from damage.
I want it to look unique.

Quite a list.

The latest product for me to assemble are my magnet sets. They have been very popular in the shops that I have them in and at fairs.  All feature my original art layered under glass and with a super strong rare earth magnet on the back.


 
 
 
Choosing to mount them on vintage dictionary pages helps to accent the colors of the art. And chip board backing to keep the whole thing rigid. 

 
 
 
Everything gets tucked into a clear bag.



Some may call this an ironing board, today it was a packaging center.


This group is being packaged for a pop-up Mother's Day Gift Shop at:

On My Drawing Table

butterfly-art


There is quite a bit of leftover wood from other projects around my studio and I have been wanting to try watercolors on them. This one is a piece of oak plywood that has a lot of tiny grains.
The brown pen that I used was not waterproof so it ran when I started painting, I like that it did.


Black pen was used to define the areas better and enhanced with colored inks and a tiny brush.



It got framed with vintage paper and covered in beeswax with a bit of mica flakes added.

It has such a delicate soft butterfly, dreamy look that I was hoping for.

This little one is listed in my Etsy Shop:

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!
