Absent Garden

I finished this piece last night as the last of the snowmelts away leaving random piles everywhere. I am intrigued by the sense of falling, which I did not see until I was almost done, and the recurring lapping of curves and points. It has a deep quiet like the snow before people came out, but there are other things going on as well. See it here without the wall paper.

Today, these tiny blue flowers are blooming in the cold wind and bright sun.

the very beginning of snow

This week I had some great finds of vintage fabrics, mostly linen tea towels from the early 80’s late 70’s, making for a really wild and interesting batch of potholders.

Master Gardner course

Tomorrow I start my Master Gardener training. I have wanted to do this for a very long time and finally I have applied and will be extricating myself from the studio, to go to class 2 mornings a week for the next ten weeks. Not really sure what I’ve gotten myself into, but will soon find out.
