My Hen

I had my UVA meeting today (Union de Viejas Artistas)  and we presented our hens and roosters.  This project took longer than anticipated, but it was well worth the wait.  I enjoyed making my hen and I just love everyone elses,  I wish I could have brought them all home with me. 
I tissue papered mine completely, then added some details in the leaves, feathers and face with a sharpie. I'm sure you also noticed that I added a little something different to my hen.  I took of the head of the hen and added a doll's head instead.   If you would like to see the other interpretations you can do so by visiting http://uniondeviejasartistas.blogspot.com/  or by clicking the blog link at the left hand side of this blog.

At the ballpark

I spent last Sunday at the ballpark with my husband and my youngest son.  It was such a nice, relaxing night just sitting there and letting the hours slowly pass us by.  I was actually sorry to leave because I knew once we left it was back to work for us.  Even though I am on summer vacations it seems there is more to do at home.  I also don't know why, but the days just fly by when I'm at home.
I have a jewelry show this weekend, wish me luck.  I am also still struggling with blogger, I can't comment on blogs and I can't stay signed in.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this issue will correct itself.

Summer has officially begun for me.  Yesterday was the last day of school and so begins my favorite time of the year.  I can now dedicate my time fully to all of the projects I have had going on for some time now.  I have a few paintings in the works, including one that I started two years ago (damn) and a few small ones that are destined for an exhibit in early August and December.  I also have a few house projects to get to, like cleaning out the garage.  I don't know how it gets full year after year.
I have also begun working on my jewelry once again.  I have neglected the shops where my work sells and it is time to visit these shops and restock the shelves.  I had planned on going tomorrow but I have a small exhibit opening on Sat, so I think I better just prepare for that.
I have also encountered some problems with Blogger.  I can't seem to stay signed in.  When I click on the 'sign in' tab it takes me directly to my dash board, but when I need to view my blog or visit other blogs, it signs me out.  Because of this I can't comment on other blogs, including my own.  I've tried getting help from Blogger, but have had no results.  Anyone else having this problem? 
Anyways, the pictures I have posted are of work that I am working on at the moment.  Hopefully they will be completed soon. 
I hope you are enjoying your summer.
