In the Studio~~Summertime!

Aaah, Summertime! Maybe it’s because I was born in June, or maybe it’s because I grew up mainly in the South…But I feel more like myself when the sun is shining very warmly,

The breezes are gently blowing through the leaves,

“lightening bugs” flash across the green grass at dusk,

and Nothing tastes better than a large glass of sweet iced tea!!  🙂 

I spend lots of time reading and working on the front porch,

and only occasionally nap in the hammock!…

I’m thinking up new Ideas!

In the Good Old Summertime…

The first day of summer is here at last!! And with summer came a flurry of busyness for me–the opposite of what we expect or dream about..

I have been taking trips, working in the yard, and planting colorful flowers in the garden. [These aren’t in my yard 🙂 ] It feels great to have warm, sunny days after the coldness of this past winter.

With a change of pace and time for new experiences, I am now inspired to be in the studio to work on new textile art and creative projects! 

Flamenco Swirl #1 is the first in a series that expresses my memories of the exciting colors and movement of a Spanish dancer’s amazingly expressive and exciting performance! (Two other pieces of this series are in earlier posts. They may be seen in the Art Gallery)

I hope to add new pieces to this series very soon! The passion and deep felt emotions with which these dances are performed greatly inspire me  to create…

Sometimes I move a project to the front porch and enjoy the breeze, the warmth of the sun, and the sound of the birds singing…

Ah… In the good old summertime!
