Every Inchie Monday....home and merriment...
Finally I am beginning to catch up on...laundry...little commissions... jewelry for the Midland Auction this Friday to raise funds for the Yellow bus Series where every child has the opportunity to experience live theater and enjoy the "green velvet seats". My dear friends from Marilyn Stocker's water media classes delivered their works for the next exhibition for the Central Gallery. "Potpourri" will open on Friday with Kojo's photographic exhibition at the Art Works Gallery on the same night from 6 to 8 pm.. The diversity of this exhibition is delightful for all viewers and this should make a delightful opening to enjoy in a family friendly event... free for all who attend.
I am working on a commission for special hand made cards for a client and to be honest..it is a very freeing exercise to get the creative juices flowing after the busy weekend. I finished the home Inchie and found the merriment in the dancing dairies that remind me of my grand daughter Morgan Elizabeth...she just makes me smile when I remember her dancing last Friday's concert in the courtyard. I hope you enjoy the playful way I have developed my own style with beading and silver embellishments and I look forward to displaying them at the end of the year onto a wall hanging quilt for my studio.
The heat has continued and I fear we may have some more horrendous storms that hit the Columbus Arts Festival on Saturday. Around four in the afternoon a fierce storm with torrential rains and 60 mph winds destroyed 34 artists tents and one artists lost over $30.000 in their art glass. I have never been able to participation these summer festivals...my works just do not show well in this environment... and the weather is always a gamble that I am not able to take. My heart goes out to these artists and their losses and hopefully they will be able to do better with a fore warning in the weather department so that there is a little time to pack up what they want to protect against the elements.
Well I need to get back to work now. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
