A Finished Necklace

Sometimes, occasionally I do finish something I start.  My wife will get this one as a Mother's Day present.  Almost always when I do finish a piece, she will glom onto it.  That tells me I should finish more pieces so I would have something to sell.


Changes coming.  I have said that before and I will say it again at the risk of being repetitive.  Most of the blog title will stay, but the words "and art" will be added, and "making" dropped.  

This change will occur when I post a piece of art work.  And, when will this occur?  I'm shooting for a posting on or about June 1, 2014, or about two weeks from now.

What kind of art?  Abstract.  Just mainly mixed media colored patterns.  A little bit of this and that: Inks, watercolors, acrylics, crayons, colored pencils, markers, collage, odd bits of this and that stuck on here and there, rubber stamps, metal pieces, beads, whatever I have on hand.  Nothing serious, just having fun with color and stuff.  Good ole stuff!

Which reminds me  of an occurrence at an art fair the wife and I attended.  Our booth was set up next to this lady who was became very irate about another ladies remarks about her artwork.  She was heard to remark quite loudly, "The nerve of that woman calling my stuff, stuff!"  So, I guess it was o.k. for the artist to call her art "stuff" but insulting when someone else did it!

I just want you folks to know, you can call my stuff, "stuff" if you like.  It's just going to be stuff.

See you soon, thanks for having a look.

Leaves again

Faux Bone leaves colored with Ranger alcohol ink.  The one on the far left has three no hole beads affixed with Ranger Glossy Accents. It has some jump rings attached. The beads are seated in depressions made with round burs.  These will end up in another tutorial that I will submit for consideration at Wubbers University.

Thanks for looking.
