when you wish upon a star...a night with the Oscars
Bret McKenzie from the "Flight of the Conchords" a two man group from New Zealand just won his Oscar for his music and original Muppets film score. Now I was in love with the movie Rio..."awkward!~" but I know my four year old friend Justin will be just as happy about the Muppet Movie win! Hugo is doing real well tonight ... I can not wait to own my copy of this spectacular movie from Martin Scorsese. I am in love with the theme of discovery in this movie and the city of Paris is alive with the illustrations!!!
This afternoon I prepared sketches in my Dawes reference book and selected some new information from Dharma Dye supplies... Jerry's Artarama ... and Procion Dyes have been very helpful as I continue to wash my bolt of cotton fabrics in preparation for this large series of first dye processes. Tomorrow I will walk the pathway of this installation and interest is growing ...mostly word of mouth... for over 25 years even my neighbors have wondered I did up on my hill in the woods. Now I am working to create a colorful landscape of sculpture made in fabrics dancing in the winds. I will evaluate where the clothes line will go and check on the studio space so I can begin asap! I received my Dawes Arboretum newsletter and I feel so honored to be working in the preparation and demonstrating for this year's Arbor Day celebration. Last year i was working with making nature rubbings and then sending children out into the arboretum to find the matching trees. I am so blessed! I hope you all have had a great weekend! Roxie continues to throw herself into our daily life and grace our hearts with total adoration! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
