Come join me "upstairs" from the Studio, a place to relax and talk with friends. Here you'll find clips of my stuff, woolgathering about the animals in the family, news about shows and events and links to other sites that I find too good not to mention. Pull up a cushion and have some cake( there should always be cake) and tea, and lets discuss the amazing world of Art in it's many forms!

Poetic thought

Windy Nights
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Whenever the moon and stars are set,
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?

Whenever the trees are crying aloud,
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

ADO 2010 Ornament Swap

What a fun exchange this was! The idea was to receive the name of another Artist on the Art Dolls Only Team and make them an ornament in the the form of a doll, 4" or larger, to hang on a tree or stand on a tabletop.
I set to work and produced an Elf child who of course had a mind of her own and resisted a lot of attempts to remain within the measurements of what I had in mind.

 She made the trip to Florida safely and was happily welcomed.

My Christmas treat was this little girl from Grace of LittleBlackCrow.
She is so original and full of feeling.
She measures about 12" from the tip of her star to her base.
Can't wait for next year!
