Life is good! It's summer, and the girls get together for a wonderful day of creating. Working on artistic projects while being surrounded by nature is very inspiring. Nature offers some of the most beautiful and captivating colors and incorporating them into your creative design gives each piece new life. I say "new" because a few of the "Chicks" are creating stepping stones, and they have incorporated old jewerly and china dishes into their designs. Maureen worked on an old copper birdbath using dishes that she no longer used. While Teri shopped our local flea market for hers. Pam is using jewelry she already has to create a stunning stepping stone for her summer place.
Kathy, Sheri and Lori prepared clay peices for a mosiac, but first they have to be fired. It will be fun to see what they do with them next week. Mary was inspired by a picture of a very colorful sailboat. She is going to create a clay mosiac for over her kitchen stove in her summer cottage. The final piece will be 2 ft x 3 ft with many pieces. It will be fun to see the progress. Diane (the real "chicken Lady") started a beautiful stained glass window hanging of . . . you guessed it! A Chicken. She took the design right off the t shirt she had on. Now, that isn't the first time that has happened!!!
So as I said, life is good. Especially next week, when we gather again for another open workshop at "Studio North"
I can’t even remember a time when my brain wasn’t thinking. In my opinion that’s what creativity is. It is imagination, it is creating from the invisible ~ what we imagine we create. You were born with imagination. Everything you do you have imagined. All of my life I just knew how to do things creatively.
