March - in like a lamb!
Okay! March is here. Yay! In my last post I complained about the bitter cold weather and how it sapped my creative energy. Well, after the weather improved, we all came down with the flu, which lasted about ten days. I started feeling human again yesterday. So here's a photo of the tequila bottle that I amused myself with while waiting for a bolt of inspiration, and also a photo of a pendant I made for a friend's mother. There's a story behind this pendant. Her mother was moving to a smaller place and weeding out stuff. Her friend had mailed her a tea set from Japan and it arrived with half the pieces broken. She started to throw it out and my friend said, "Wait, let me have that for Silva; she mosaics." So we ordered two silver plated pendants from Etsy and I cut a couple of pieces from the tea set. The pendant she chose was a large square and the image captured in it was a white sacred crane on a chocolate and bronze background. I didn't get a picture of it. This is the other one; the one I kept. The tequila bottle is ready to be grouted. I am going to wrap a heavy duty textured ribbon around the neck and paint it.
I am about to get busy again. A friend is having an open house in April called "The Art in Women" and I will have a display table there. The fifth graders at Bee Cave Elementary will be creating a mosaic bird bath for their butterfly garden and I will be helping with that, starting about the middle of March. So it's time to shake off the winter doldrums.
