Getting the Picture

This is the first in a series of flower pictures that I have made to the Eastside Culture Crawl. They are only 4"x4" (10.16 cm square) but that way I can make a bunch to practice. They are 100% polymer clay but I have mounted them on small canvases to they are easy to hang.

Bowling Obsession

November is the Eastside Culture Crawl and all the activity in our studio has been directer to those 4 days ( November 19th to the 22nd ) when 400 or so artists in Vancouver open their doors to the city and the world. 
This year will be the 20th anniversary of the event and my first year in a "new" studio. The quotations are because the building, Paneficio-Studios, has a lot of history before I moved in. It was a thriving bakery in the 1930s to a Dojo in the 1980. 
For me it is great place to sit and make bowls. I think I have enough bowls now but really I would really like to make more, maybe a turquoise purple theme, but they again maybe I should pay a little more attention to the things that I don't like doing like tidying, cleaning and paying the bills.

Oops to0 Short a Cord

Oops! Someone bought a locket from my husband yesterday and got a cord that is probably too short. If you get in touch with me I will send you another cord. Sorry. Joan

Totem Going to Seed

This is a picture that I scooped off Carol Simmons Face Book share. I was going to use my own photos but this photo by Syndee Holt  is much superior.

Laurel Swetnam's remind me of a rich and abundant  planet that I will never visit but somehow makes me think feel at home.

Totem Exchange

I am participating in a totem exchange. Over the next few weeks I will post pictures of the work of other artists. Today  it is all about me.
My totems are about flight with a few old beads thrown in to space things out.
