Please save my trees. We are under a warning tonight until the wee hours of the morning. Outdoor furniture is secured...plants have been moved to safety...and the weather men are on all the major channels. I am sorting my design elements for a new project...continuing my crochet design on a cotton sweater....and praying for the very best tonight. I had a great gentleman come in the studio to say goodbye...he has been offered a very good job in homeland security over in Columbus. Mike is a great man with a connection with a higher power...he has warned me and others that our communications on the Internet are never really secured. Mike came to say goodbye to us all and we had a quiet moment to pray for Ken and his journey. He hugged our Jay...and asked us all to keep him safe from harm and ridicule...he gave Jay a strong hug and whispered an encouraging word or two in his ear. We need to embrace the change... reflect...trust and then move forward.
It was a Dad's day out with the little ones at The Works................Happy Father's Day!
more sketchbooks....clear containers...smaller for small design elements..........
After I closed the studio I went to see Branson and to try to persuade his mother to allow him to attend the free drawing art classes once a week at the Newark Library. This family is struggling in so many ways...so I am hopeful Branson knows there is someone who believes in him. He is a teenage boy....hungry...he ate the rest of the ice cream last night. He is impulsive and does not always think things through...but he is still growing. It was a hot summer afternoon and I wish she would allow him and his brother ride their bikes to the YMCA for an afternoon of swimming, This would be a great outlet for all of his energy.
I came home today to a box delivered from a kind patron with fabrics, glass bulbs, Sculpey, Christmas diorama supplies....a bit of this and a bit of that. I know I am moving to be closer to Ken ...but I can always find a home for great art supplies. There are so many idle hands out there ...thirsty to make something creative!
Have a safe night...save my dear trees...and look forward to a cooler morning . Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
