Just a little fun project I started 2 years ago!  The "face" is an iron-on patch with 2 buttons.  I fell in love with this piece of fabric and it all fell together.  First, I covered a 4" x 4" canvas with the fabric (staple gun).  I added the face & pins, then let it sit while life went rolling on its way.  Last year, after my husband gave me an old drill of his, I drilled holes in the sides.
Now, many months later, while watching baseball & resting I finally created the wire & bead antennae.  The earrings were added when I attached the face.  A little glue on the end of the wire, fit nicely into each hole and an extra dab of glue on the base bead.  Voila!  Another little art piece to hang on my bathroom wall.
It will remind me to smile and laugh at myself a little more...maybe not worry so much about things.
Thanks for stopping by!

This is the front and back of a page I did for the workshop group, "Roses on my Table".  A member of the group is having health issues and the group decided to do a "Kindred Spirit" book of warm, healthy wishes.  How can I pass that up?  Although I didn't know about her until now, we all have the commonality of being 'artists', and we share a kidred spirit in just that.

If you think about it, kindred spirits come in all areas...all you need is a common interest, usually shared with passion.  It is almost like a quiet support group where people (for the most part) understand what you go through when you expose your inner self in art...or music...or writing...or photography...the list goes on.

Who do you consider your kindred spirit? 
Something to think about!

Finally, the day had arrived!  Nancy (my niece shown here) is holding mine and Robin Krieger's books!! We were so jazzed!!

The Madrone Studio, San Francisco, CA, was the perfect spot for this show.  Although it looks like only a few people are there, by the time we left, the studio was packed and folding chairs were brought out en masse!  The Art Co-op group did a fantabulous job of organizing, keeping the books flowing out for viewing and returning for restocking . 
The most impressive part was the kindness, respect and joy shared and displayed by the Art Co-op...they made the experience all that more enjoyable!  Kudos to you wonderful people!
