So I think I escaped.
The sketches I did got me too excited to pass by the jewelry bench, so I managed to avoid the clay room.
I did have to buy myself a little consolation prize though.
Just to get me through you understand.
It was a little tricky, and I did feel somewhat guilty about the clay, but the sketch book won.
Did I mention that I’d bought a new batch of stones?
One day I’ll show you them all, but I’m worried your computer will explode.
In’t they cool :)
Here are some of the sketches.
Not all of them work for me, but they were enough to get me started.
In-between starting and finishing this piece I went to the Bayou City Art Festival here in Houston with a friend.
Like I needed to go to get any more ideas.
I have come home excited.
And I had to buy a few things.
Mostly I bought some stuff for my girls, but this is mine.
Bad photo as I was too impatient to show you.
Here’s her photo of it from her website.
You can click on the image to go to her website, but I warn you, you may never be the same again.
I’ve wanted one of her paintings for over ten years now.
There was a lot of good stuff, and some blah stuff, at the show. I took some photographs of the pieces that caught my eye, but kept forgetting.
And these guys are so cool.
That’s it I’m afraid. Sorry if I got you all excited.
So, on this fine Sunday, I will leave you with why I need to get a new washer upper. P has (once again) chipped a vital tea mug.
Just can’t get the help nowadays.
Off to paint now.
