Beach Time

  Yesterday morning it was very gloomy here in Tucson.  It had rained the night before and the clouds were lingering. 
  I was day dreaming of a trip to some tropical location when I created this collage/vignette.  I used real starfish, shells and some sea glass.

A Day at the Beach

  Despite a lingering cold, I was creative yesterday.  I made a bracelet and necklace with copper colored components and stones that look like sea glass.

Orchids Forever

  I love orchids but haven't the time nor the patience that makes them flourish.  There are many good looking faux orchids available nowadays so I can indulge my love for them without having to worry about watering and fertilizing.
  This is a faux orchid plant I assembled today.  Adding bamboo and raffia makes it look more realistic.
  Now if I could just find more tall pots like that one I'd be thrilled.

Spreading Her Wings

  It's been awhile since I felt even an ounce of creativity.  Life was busy, then I got sick with a bad cold.  Today I couldn't resist the sunshine, so I went outdoors and read for awhile.
  Our backyard is popular with wild birds.  We have finches, quail, doves and the occasional hawk and owl.  These wild creatures used to inspire my art.
  Then I saw a dove feather on the ground.  I picked it up and knew immediately I had to create something with it.  This is a page in my long neglected art journal.
