The Guys wanted to fish Wildcat Lake, so I let them have at it. The colors were awesome so I drew this picture using a sharpie and colored pencils. Daniel caught one of the largest Rainbow Trouts I have ever seen! Catch and Release.....
Over the last few month I have been making a Dragonfly Button Blanket for my mother, Anne.
I presented it to her at our yearly women's retreat in California, she had no idea that I was making it for her so she was thoroughly surprised! I wrote up the journey of this blanket and you can read it here...Dragonfly Button Blanket.
My Friend Steffy Bushra Khan, sent me a photo of her mother -in-law, Anwara Khatoon, whom they call Amma, which means "Mother". A very beautiful and much loved person who lives in Bangledesh. I did my best to paint her, she is far more beautiful than my skill allowed.
This past winter was really hard on the plants in south Florida. We had so many below freezing nights in a row that I lost many of my perennials as well as small trees, like the baby Royal Poinciana I put in two years ago. So I cleaned everything up and cut back plants I thought would make it. I went to a local nursery and got a few new plants, while I wait a few weeks to see what survives and what I will have to replace. I will water and meditate and enjoy watching the new chutes of growth.
Work has definitely gotten in the way of my fun and my creative endeavors! I have started to clean up my studio to get ready for the next art work. So I will lovingly go through my art and sewing supplies and get myself organized. This might take a while! But I am itching to get working on art so I am hoping for the studio cleaning elves to show up this weekend!
