Where does the time go?!

WOW, I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. Well, if your days seem to fly right by I know how you feel! I have been busy though working in the garden - when the rain has stopped and the mosquitoes aren't out - and creating 'stuff' and reading about cooking, creating and gardening.
I have several art projects in the works, such as painting on tiles:

Repainting a little blue gnome a friend gave me:
The color of the base is the color the whole gnome was
Some owl ATC's for a swap in May:
A mandala I designed in a class:
it's getting there!
which is taking a while because I can't decide quite what colors I should use and you can only color it once!

I'm currently working on sculpted figure, 'The White Queen' from Through the Looking Glass, but since this is for a swap I can't post any pictures yet.
I've also been taking lots of photos of my yard, various plants and shrubs, and of the cats:
periwinkle iris

elderberry blossom

fancy columbine

grape vine gone crazy

fur kids in the yard
Teasel in the tub with flowers

  And to think it's June already...


  1. Wonderful work! Love the owls and the mandala! The photos are beautiful too! I hope you're doing well!
    Obviously, I'm lost... hubby is still off, illness was rampant in the household (I'm sick now) and work is all-consuming... sigh.
    lol... Have a great weekend!

  2. oh my, you hang in there Lotus!!! though it may seem like there is no end in sight, there will be a breakthrough and this too shall pass!! thanks for your kind words!
