Redunnit

I volunteered at the Sono Art Festival in Norwalk, CT,  yesterday. I worked hard,but I had a lot of fun!  The artists were superb, and I made great friends, even if it was just for a few hours.  A very well run show and I hope to exhibit in it sometime in the future.

But as I looked, I realized my thoughts were right about selling a lot of small affordable art.  So, I looked back on some of the work I wanted to redo (failure is such an ugly word isn’t it?

For instance, I did this note card as a preliminary sketch, and loved it.  Can’t find it. I must have sent it out to someone. Silly me.

Then as a finished version, it left a lot to be desired.  It looks like a cosmic baseball glove to me. (Actually failure is more of an ugly and dismal word.)

So, finally to make up for all that dismalness, I decided to make on it one of my redos in a smaller scale.

Yes, once again “Venus and Mars are Alright, Tonight”.

At Last…or What Am I, Nuts?

I’ve labored long and not so lovingly on this.  I like the result, but damn, the tedium.  I know I’ve talked about the repetitive, long lasting tasks as being meditative, but this time, that didn’t happen.  Doing the ivy made me just about tear my hair out.  So, I did it a little, teeny-tiny bit at a time, as long as my patience would allow me.  Thus, it took me over a month to do this.

When I last wrote, I spoke about the Ride for MS event, I believe.  I volunteered there, and it all ended with a grand BBQ at an estate turned into a park.  So, I saw a garden…a little piece of peace, while I was there.

Don’t have a real title for this right yet, working title is “At the Estate”.
