Well, as you can see, I just recently made two little ACEOs (above). These are now for sale in my Etsy store - which I haven't graced with new artwork for sometime (tut tut!). Well, it's the new year, so I'm making an effort to make a bit more of my stuff available online, instead of always at the artfairs.
|Lunch at Caros - tomato and carrot soup, surimi, spiced chicken, fresh corn, lettuce parcel wraps with pomegranate seeds! Spoilt doesn't even begin to describe it...|
|Caro's orderly drawers of art-supplies - enlarge this one, it's worth a look at those labels...and if you still can't see them, take a look at the photo below (Nb. Paua is Maori for abalone)|
|See what I mean? I could spend a whole day going through those drawers, oooing and ahhing.|
|My space in Caro's studio - with my two ACEOS underway....Caro's artwork is on the wall.|
|What a happy mess! Pania and Jill's workstation. Messy buggers...|
|A sample of Caro's work...beautifull!!|
2. Pulp Redux finale
4. House and Garden
5. Friends and Family
I've decided not to elaborate on this list, which I'm going to post on my side panel to keep me focussed. Instead, the fruit of these resolutions will live here on my blog. And so, because I wrote friends and family...here is a window into one of my amazing friends' lives, which I'm so happy to celebrate here with you.
One of my other resolution headings was workshops, and boy did Pania and I run a fun one a couple of weeks ago. It was another Introduction to altered art class and look at these fabulous before and after shots:
|BEFORE: Cherie's finds - above and below|
|AFTER "Time for Tea!" Zip and photo clip lid, flower with time dials and a decoupaged teapot!|
|Viv's back for a 2nd round - here are her luscious finds!!|
|The beginning of a luscious lady peg doll - can't wait to see this when it's finished!!|
|Linda's stash...she didn't use any of this, but instead pulled out and chose from more treasures she'd been hiding under the table! Surprise!!|
|Yvonne's eclectic trash|
|The beginning of Yvonne's take on Botticelli's The Birth of Venus, below! Venus, eat your heart out!|
Now that was the coolest day! Pania made the most divine chicken salad, which - in my excitement and eagerness to eat - I'd forgotten to take a photo of! None of our students got anything completed - but that's ok, it was the secrets we shared and the camaraderie and even the time that we gifted them that were the treasures of the day. Each creation was a pearl that they could go home and polish - and in that sense, everyone went home with their own Botticelli's!
