"Seasons" is visiting the Saratoga Arts Council gallery until December 31.  The opening for the members' show is Saturday, December 3 from 6 to 8 p.m.  This picture was taken before the piece was framed so now it is dressed up in fancy clothes and strutting its stuff on the gallery wall.  There were some interesting pieces lining the walls when I dropped this off, so I hope you get a chance to stop by the galley and check out the artwork.

To Muse or Not to Muse

Friend and fellow fiber artist Diane Evans recently asked ME, of all people, what to do about creating because her muse had deserted her.  I advised making something small just to create.  Of course Diane did what she always does, "museless" or not, which is make something gorgeous. You can see her wonderful card by clicking on her name.

My muse and Diane's muse were obviously basking in the sun on the Riveria sipping wine from crystal stemware because I had to take my own advice. I took a collage class with  Fran Skiles  at Quilting By the Lake this summer.  It was very intense and inspiring resulting in these two collages.   After returning home, however, the muse ran away again.  Finally, after 20 greeting cards and 12 small pieces The Muse has returned demanding attention.

The Muse has to wait for something serious to happen until I dig my studio out from under the photography equipment, the carpet of snippets on the floor from 32 small artworks, and piles of rummage sale fabrics waiting to be ironed. Hopefully it will be worth the wait!

Baby Buzz Flies Solo

Baby Buzz is taking his first solo flight. He's not too sure about this landing business. After the first few flights, he'll get the hang of it.
Baby Buzz will be part of the "Bugs" exhibit that ARTAA
will be showing at the Adirondack Museum Fiber Festival in September.
So far, he's making everyone smile and that's a good thing.
Happy flying, Buzz!
