Studio Spring Sort & Straighten
Sometimes, especially when I am hit with something heavy in my life...hmm. Let's see... something like a global pandemic, it just feels good to look through some of the art I have created and put frames on them: to give my artwork the definition and respect it deserves. It is not unlike tidying one's house or vacuuming the car...but possibly more like adjusting a meal with herbs and other seasonings. First, I pick and choose pieces that appeal to me that day, and then I pair them with one of the many frames I have collected over the years -- frames I have been drawn to because of their own inherent beauty....wooden inlay, bone, glass, lacquer...And when I know I have a good match, I feel that little leap of excitement! It always takes longer than expected to compile, but in the end, I end up with "completed" pieces all ready to hang up in my own home or rehome. I don't have homebaked cookies or sourdough loaves to show off on social media, but here is a montage of my latest batch of art! Notice that I have only matted some of them: This allows the new owner to choose a suitable frame for themselves. Ask me about any of these...I have a story about each one.
