Funky owls

When I finished the 50 pears I realized I had 7 days before my next online class.  Whatever will I do?   How about 7 funky owls in 7 days.    Size 6x6 inches. I think they are cute.

Pears, pears and more pears !!!

About 15 or 16 years ago I followed an art assemblage group on yahoo.  I came across an exhibition of 50 pieces of art in 50 days.  I was enraptured by the thought.  Pieces were small about 6x6 if my memory serves me well.  There were assemblage pieces along with portraits and landscapes.

I tried it with watermelons and got to 8 pieces and then thought “to hell with it “.

Well, I’ve completed 52 pears.  2 were done in 2016.  The other 50 were done in the last few weeks. Size is 3 1/2 x 5 inches.   I don’t know if I will frame theme but if I do, it’s a staple size at dollar tree. Enjoy!!!

Trash picking success —finally!

Several years ago I acquired ( trash picking) a camera tripod that was in great shape and I wanted to make it into a floor lamp.  After knowing I didn’t have the tools (and the skills) to do it, I was at the point of giving it to a friend who has yard sales.   Had a friend who wanted to go to the art studios on Stock Island and we went into Damon Designs.  He had a tripod floor lamp on display.  To make a long story short, I asked him if he could wire my camera tripod and he did.  HE DID!!!!  I’m so glad I hadn’t gotten rid of it.
