It's been almost 3 weeks from the show and I'm still workin', workin', workin'. I'm aiming for my last 2 pieces to be at the framers by Monday at the latest. Right now I'm working on a bunch of flowers. First is the painting, then the cleaning up by removing the paint from the edges...I think a fine silver line makes the flowers look better. Then the stems, then affixing them to the flowers, then protecting. Then layout. These last two are going to take quite a bit of time each....I'll lay them out, come and go (every time I walk into the room I see a bit that needs to be tweaked), then finally silicone everything onto the board. That alone is quite a job. Then comes looking through the magnifier to see if any miniscule threads of silicone ended up in the wrong place......yada, yada, yada.
Picking up some pieces at the framer today. Only problem is, a tiny detail in one of the pieces has been bothering my head, and I may end up un-framing it to change it. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!
It's been a blast, but I'm also excited about making some new pieces. I need to get some new photo's done of my nest pieces so that I can blow them up poster size for my display. I've used my old ones for 1.5 years now, and I need to change it up. Only problem.....sold out of nest pieces, so I'll have to make more. That is actually a break for me....making purely for the joy of it as opposed to an order. I've decided to take the rest of the summer off from formal stuff so I'm not booking any classes till September. If I change my mind I will certainly let people know.
