Mixed mediums........... Uncommon Threads. a review by Margaret Quamme for the Columbus Dispatch in the ARTS & Life section for July 7,2013....sorry but you will have to Google this wonderful review....I will explain.
This morning Ken and I went to see our favorite eye doctor Dr. Henry! I knew I was having some major difficulty with my vision... especially in the left eye. Well to make a long story ...short. My cataracts are ready to be removed...I have an appointment with the specialist on Thursday morning. I could not see anything after the dilation in the left eye... and even now hours later ...I still can not focus worth a darn. Lord if this is a test ...well I am drowning... still afloat but getting a bit tired of this journey with so many doctors. I understand with competent hands there has been a great deal of improvement if this specific procedure...but darn I really do not want another trial and tribulation right now. When I came home I did what all artists who are hitting a frustration wall do...I watched my favorite 1970's move M.A.S.H. It still holds true after all of the years ...and was a great distraction.
Tomorrow I am teaching with my ADD adults at Dawes Arboretum ...I have most of the materials ready to go...except I need to seek and find the pre-cut watercolor papers so I can stamp with the Stazon ink pad ...so we can play with watercolors and crayons once again. "Dragonflies" and green ferns and plants will be our theme...it is too wet to go outside so while we work in the greenhouse...I will have as much ready to go for my students.
Forgive me for my trials and tribulations Monday! Tomorrow will get better because we have a plan! Does this sound like I am trying to convince my self??? Well............ Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
THIS TOO SHALL PASS......
here is a copy from the Columbus Dispatch ....congratulations Mary Ann Tipple....
I received my new embellishment book from Amazon...It will be great to be able to read and make new stitches and embellishments....soon real soon!
maybe this would be the day to experiment with Painting Intuitively.........I am smiling now.
