I can’t stay.

I’m on a roll.

I don’t go into the studio for a month, now I can’t leave.

First up.

Amethyst.

(yes, I know it was banned from the studio)

Amethyst Slice and Purple Jasper

And,

Turquoise.

I know it doesn’t look like turquoise, but it is.

Now I’ve a piece of prudent man plume agate waiting for me, and you know how impatient that can be.

A sad day for the studio.

I’m liking it a little more after I cleaned it up yesterday.

And here’s something I worked on earlier in the week.

This one’s huge. A little different for me.

Both are on Etsy now.

So, what to do today?

Unfortunately I’m torn between cleaning and making. I hate decisions like this. Invariably the cleaning doesn’t win, but I think the house is getting a bit desperate now.

Oh misery, and sadness. It’s out with the duster I suppose :(

I’ll be O.K. I’ll be O.K. I’ll be O.K. ….


Now, where were we?

Back to jewelry.

I’ve been making a few things.

I decided to go a bit bohemian with the last one, but I’m not sure I like it.

I’ve not been in the studio today as I’ve been out and about this morning and decided that I just have to go to see Life of Pi this afternoon before it leaves the cinema without me.

N and I are off in a few minutes. I loved the book, I’m guessing the movie will be good according to the reviews, and Ang Lee is just so cute, isn’t he? He seems like a nice man.

Tomorrow I’m thinking of rearranging the studio. Moving everything around. Touching stuff, throwing out stuff and generally cleaning it all up.

Big job. Not sure if I’m completely up to it.

We’ll see.


Studio Time.

Today I made a ring.

Now I’ve got to wait until tomorrow until I can play again.

A rainy Pissarro kind of day.

Big storm last night and it looks like more rain today. Right now it’s dark and cosy. A good reading day, but, I’m thinking studio …

A while back I started this,

which turned into this,

then this,

and now this,

As always I think I prefer the first one. Bummer!

Today I’ll be continuing to work the back ground and do something with the tree and sky.

I took it from Pissarro’s – The Red Roofs.

Isn’t it brilliant.

No chance I’ll be caught in a fraudulent act here! Just practicing.

 I’ve been going through a ton of audio books while out in my studio and it’s costing me a small fortune. The last one I downloaded was, I Alex Cross, by James Patterson. It was O.K. a bit more grizzly than the others. These authors certainly have a dark side, it’s a wonder they’re allowed out on the streets. Then dad brought over some Dick Francis, pretty light weight in comparison. That was just O.K too. I think it might be time to get out some real books for a change. I do have an audio copy of, To Kill a Mockingbird, one of my favourite books, and movies come to that, (can you say Gregory Peck!) so I think I might give that a go today.

Who knows, it might just improve my painting skills.

One can always hope …
