During "stay at home" time I did a lot of work on the house, She Shed and gardens. I did finish up and "graduate from the Master Gardeners Program also. I am doing The Artist Way with an artist friend of mine, Sari who lives in Seattle. It is great to get together on Sunday evenings and support each other. We will probably continue on with a Artist Book Club. Love it!
In the home studio I have been collaging and art journaling, it is so much fun to do something that is not part of your artistic life but a trail of the path. Oh my goodness I have purged books and magazines. It is amazing how many I have and really don't need anymore. The new open space is comforting.
I have been in the studio to work and did a repair, framed three pieces. Fred goes with me and we have a blast. He does scare people walking by when he charges the front door unless he is asleep! I do not mind working by yself, i have done that for years so it is comofrtable. Part of my work at the house was clearing out and setting up She Shed as a stained glass studio at home, the only draw back is not electricity which means no soldering, no ac for the summer, no heat for the winter! But is it a work in process.
The damage on the front of the building has not been repaired yet, contractors are working another big job right now. Trying to be patient.
