Walking on water and clouds...

This is one of the most beautiful February's ever. 
Usually it's our coldest winter month, instead we're enjoying
sunshine, giant soft snowflakes on Valentine's Day, and
enough fresh rain to fill up dry creek beds.

Some of February

There's been lots of sunshine and mysterious moonlight.  
The artwork was inspired by a piano concert we attended. 
Dr. Hyunsoon Whang is a friend and Greg's colleague. Along with
her selection of Beethoven and Chopin, she included one of Greg's
compositions in her program.  I included a small cameo in the art piece,
the snip of paper which reads "In D."  I'm taking an on-line
workshop from artist, Mindy Lacefield right now, and this is reminiscent 
of her charming, child-like style. :)

The small works of my hands recently….

Reader I & Reader II (Found objects: sea stones and figures)

In this society of cell phones and computers, its refreshing to see
someone read an 'old-fashioned' newspaper or a real book! :)

"In the Balance"  (Found objects: shells, sea glass and figure)

I created another miniature gallery for the new local coffee/pastry shop.
This was a 4" x 9" vintage drawer - made over with a paint job of 
Buttercream and Wyeth's Field Green and adorned with new treasures 
gifted by various artists.

A friend asked me to make her beautiful Labradorite stone wearable -
so I linked some beads and attached to an adjustable satellite chain.

The end of last year, I discovered the beautiful Tangerine Quartz.
I enjoy my own necklace so much that I wanted to create some for other creative types. :)
I think it's the gentleness, and the light and glow which reminds me
 of the first or last glimmer of the sun that makes this quartz a joy to wear.

Wired up

This is my progress.  Two are ready.

Tangerine Quartz #1 ($38)
Tangerine Quartz #2 ($25)

The prairie has been soaking up rain and listening to thunder.
Winter is cold but relaxed.

San Antonio/Texas

San Jose
San Juan
The Alamo 

We spent some time in San Antonio - besides the downtown Riverwalk fun 
and enjoying good food, we checked out the Missions in the area -
the Alamo being the most famous of course.

It was 86 degrees and felt like a nice oasis in the midst of this winter season,
though Oklahoma is having fair & sunny weather also.

Sending warmth and light to you.

"Sisters & Cousins"

My sister, Michelle, asked if I could make some earrings out of her 100 year old cameo bracelet.  Here's what I came up with.  I call them "Sisters & Cousins" because I managed to squeeze a pair out for our cousin Inge also!
