Eclectic Art

"Cute as a bug, short as a minute, she's a pretty little package with every thing in it... "
lyle lovett- oh yeah... 
Where does inspiration come from? 
Perfect lyrics, upbeat music, art of all mediums, trees, mood, color, a sense of well-being... 
Sometimes things happen in my studio that I cannot quite explain, so I won't try... 
I am loving this new eclectic piece of art- it's a little crazy- but then again- not so much. I'll let you be the judge.

February means March is NEXT. YAY Spring!

Here it is the middle of February. A busy time in the studio, preparing for summer and stocking galleries and doing shows.  New for me this year is incorporating teaching metalsmithing classes into the mix. Very exciting and fun! We are having a great time, and sharing knowledge is such a good feeling! 
I am currently working on some leaf and vine bracelets to put out in the galleries. Getting in the studio is sometimes a real challenge- so you sit down and the telephone rings! It IS inevitable. There are so many interruptions when you work at home. It is okay though- it is a tradeoff I am willing to make! But it takes a lot to stay productive when there are so many things pulling you in every other direction than work!
