The beginning...

November 29....cold and sunny with frost on the ground...thought I would start this blog mainly as a journal and to share my thoughts and images with other like minded artists.
I live in a rural area that is full of inspiration as well as frustration. This past summer my wonderful husband decided to build me a detatched studio since my project area/workroom was starting to overflow into other parts of our small house. As the project neared completion I was beside myself waiting to get in and try out all of my great ideas that flow through my head on my daily walks with Griffin. When I finally moved in I was a bit intimidated and lost in such a space , beautiful as it is. Well after a few months of pissing around I have started working with good old papier mache and having a blast! The process is truly amazing going from little balls of mush to shapes and eventually end up with a life of there own....It's great to be motivated again.
