A quiet place to relax and take a peek at some thoughts and images from my studio and farm. Hopefully you will find something to amuse you. Please leave a comment if it is worth your time.

Lovely in her Bones
12"x15" I enjoyed making this piece. The woman is my great great great grandmother. Lovely, isn't she? I was inspired to use the poem by Theodore Roethke, "I knew a woman, lovely in her bones, When small birds sighed, she would sigh back at them; Ah, when she moved, she moved more ways than one."
It is rather a potpourri of items gathered from here and there in my studio. Feathers, lace, copper washers, beads, some beautiful trim, and other bits and bobs. I rather like this piece.
Today, listening to the Swell Season. I love that Glen Hansard's voice, he is such a passionate singer. Also I want to welcome my newest follower. Welcome Mary!
