Marbling















We tried our hand at nail polish marbling on rocks and paper outside on a breezy summer day. It was a fun smelly experiment that lent to beautifully colorful objects.

Mountain Sky



Day One






Day Two















Day Three






















Day Four










Day five 








Day six






Last year at the fair the relationship of the sky with the top of the show tents prompted me to take a few photos. With each click, I began thinking about mountains and desert peaks. 

This year as I looked at the sky I continued to have the same fluttering excitement while soaking in the sky as it reached the edges of the show tent top.  I took photos everyday, sometimes in the morning and afternoon and once throughout the entire day. 

The sky is breathtaking how it changes drastically from one moment to another and at other times seems to rest quietly. It is a simple thing to gaze up and I could for hours.

3 Whales







A day of sewing...but what? A whale of course!

 






I was in the mood to stitch and these embroidery boxes were just the thing to try out a sculptural experiment.






Years ago my daughter and I were painting animals. The whale I was painting turned into a pirate with a hedgehog as a hat and a first mate. Perfect for my son's birthday invitation.
