The Impending Ending

I can feel now that the end of my blissful vacation is near. My days of creative freedom are over. It is a paralyzing thought sometimes, but I am trying to make to best of it and keep the energy up. I have had so many ideas and felt so relaxed to pursue whatever I wanted this week. A nice feeling in the midst of winter and the school year.

Here are some photos from my trip to Rhode Island at the beginning of the week. Just random artistic views of the world.

Can you picture it?

This is A's chair, as of last night, dry fitted and propped up so you can get an idea of what it longs to be. It will have feet and a cushion seat.

I went to the local woodworking shop today and picked up a bunch of ends and scraps of nice wood for very little money. I am so excited to play around with some ideas I have. I have to go get it from the car now...through the wet falling snow.

This is not my typical mode of art, but is fits this week's Inspire Me Thursday prompt. This is a dress I started making 2 1/2 years ago. It was cut out in pieces as of last week and now is much further along, but still not complete. I have decided to make it more funky so I bought ivory cotton lace (old fashioned type) and ivory satin ribbon for the hem and the neck line, respectively.

Winter: In Progress

This is a painting I started a couple weeks ago. It has a ways to go still...more mixed media and finish the cars and trees. It represents me staring out my window (it is the view from my desk in our home office) and dreaming of escaping the winter grey and sometimes feeling delusional and seeing things that I am actually imagining. Yes, there is a map in the sky.

So I have decided to deviate from my original idea that this blog would be solely about is going to be both because I don't need to try to keep up two blogs for the two sides of myself.

SIGH, I love off to continue working on A's chair. I am actually making progress and will post pics of it later.
