I don't seem to be able to focus on one medium but at least I am back to making things again. I made this little mixed media piece and the first person that I showed it to wanted it. That inspires me to keep going! It is only 12" x 12" and I think it looks bigger in the photo. After making tiny art pieces in beads for so long, it is difficult for me to adjust to working bigger. I actually made beads yesterday but have not photographed them yet. We have had smoke in this area all day from a "controlled burn" somewhere North of where I live. It makes it hard to breathe outside and I hope it clears up quickly. That can't be healthy for those who have to work outside. It has also made driving hazardous. More soon!
I first began making glass beads in 2004 and have been consumed ever since. Experimenting with different techniques, glass colors and metals is a never ending pleasure. I love opening the kiln to see what new suprises are inside. I am truly blessed to be able to do what gives me so much joy.
