Oh man, I just love these pendants I am making. I am very much into vintage everything, so these get me very excited. It’s like a little antique you can wear every day! Because they are vintage glass, they are translucent and sparkle which I just can’t capture via camera. Either way, I’m plugging away at my collection and I hope there are people out there that find them as special as I do!
This week I’ve also been working on some cell phone holders. The idea stems from at least 4 devices on my counter at all times. Does any other household have this problem? I am creating little 8×10″ pockets to attach by the outlets and hopefully get my counters back! I’m making some to sell at the holiday shows too… Again, we’ll see if my choices resonate with holiday shoppers this winter…
On a final note, I dragged my loving mother 3 hours away to Bennington, Vermont to see the Milton Avery exhibit. The Bennington Art Museum has an exhibition of his work until November. I am obsessed with Milton Avery. I adore his loose impressionistic arrangements and his killer use of color. In fact, I believe the museum called it his “dissociative” use of color. Meaning he makes trees that are blue even though humans associate green with trees. To me, creating these amazing color compositions, takes what could sometimes be considered a very boring landscape and transforms them into something magical. Mark my words, you will see an intense inspiration of Milton Avery in my painting this upcoming January. I have been quietly studying what direction I want to go with my painting and this genre feels just right.
OK. off to make mosaic jewelry…I haven’t shown you pictures of that yet…but I am creating up a storm. Feels Great!
