I went through the donations of materials I received for use on Family Wednesday night activities. I can see we will be making lace angels around Christmas...the bodies are still in the design mode. I gave the remaining materials to Goodwill ...they can make sure they will be used in the near future instead of storing them in my limited space in my studio. I went over to see the kids making their sculptures with Lynn Logan Grimes and her summer camp. The room was filled with bright colors and wonderful designs ... and quietly chattering creative children. I met one girl who had been out to Dawes when I was working on my installation. She was eager to share her design and asked if she could come over to make a visit. I returned to my studio after speaking with Larry our glass artist in residence...he is in need of prayers because he has hurt his knee and is in serious pain. Our bodies are a fragile balance ...mind, body and spirit and when we are in pain there is disharmony in our spirits.
I received a special phone call from my best friend Cyd. She has been on an amazing trip....two coastlines...two oceans... in two weeks. Just hearing her voice made me miss her more, I am planning a trip near the end of September. I want to work around her schedule...she has done so much for me for the last 25 years. She was even able to fulfill her dream of seeing a baseball game at Fenway park in Boston!
Patty Brady has several books on acrylics out in publication.
Tomorrow I am going in a bit earlier...I need to get this clean up job completed now. I have too many things to complete and the mess is getting to me! Have a great week in your creative arenas. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
