THIS WEEK........

All week I have tried to get to a couple of projects that I have mulled around in my head for months. 
People give me old wood and pieces of old house siding thinking I can use it for some art project or the other and of course I do see some wonderful pieces of artwork developing on the weathered grain.
So this week I started a painting on a piece of old wood and some fabric art using old textiles.

I kind of like the way the grain of the wood appears to mimic the grain of the table. I added glitter to the petals for fun and a very old rusted chain for hanging it. 

And in the textile department......

I used some very old fabric for this piece including the old crochet that was done by a wonderful 103 year old lady many, many years ago. The spoon is one of many I purchased a couple of years ago at a garage sale. I always love it when I get to utilize stuff I have dragged around with me for years...YAY!
I have already picked a few fabrics for the next project and I hope to finish it in the next day or two.
This is going to be a very busy week because I am doing an art show at the local Cultural Arts Center this Saturday the 26th and I still have a folding door that needs to be painted so it can be used to hang my paintings on and then I need to create a few paintings for the ASPCA Valentine's Day table in the local mall. I try hard to never turn them down when they ask for help.

I hope everyone is having a super weekend and planning something special to celebrate Martin Luther King Day tomorrow. 

May Liberty and Peace always be ours in America!


  1. These art works are creative and pretty; well done. I did something new too; I wrote my first poem and it was published. The magazine and check arrived yesterday.

  2. Hello Tina! To start, it was so nice to hear from you a couple of weeks ago and it's so nice to see your creativity too!

    I hope you are doing well, and your year is off to a good start! I have missed you!!
