First Friday Art Show June 1, 2018
The show is up! I will be at Alaska House Art Gallery from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Friday June 1, 2018. Stop in and let me show you what I have been beading!
One bead at a time.
I have been beading up a storm! Getting ready for a new show is always exciting, and messy. Here are some photos of what I have been doing. My piece,” There is Music in the Air” was in the juried art show” Whimsy”. It was a fun show. Lots of talented artists in Fairbanks! IContinue reading “One bead at a time.”
New bead project
After looking at this bead art for 2 weeks I am certain that it is finished! Framing bead embroidery is a challenge. Shadow boxes are nice, but seem to hide the work. I like the open frame on bead embroidery but, worry about dust, hair , and other environmental problems. I have started my newestContinue reading “New bead project”
I think I am finished…
I got a lot done over the last few days, finished the pines and added branches to the other trees. Filled in the edges and put some little touches here and there. I will sit it aside to make sure I am done while I decide on what type of beads to use for theContinue reading “I think I am finished…”
Winter Cabin update 1-11
I think we have reached the part of winter where I get antsy. I started beading the pine trees, got done with one and jumped to the door frame. The door needed more outline, it was really bugging me. Made a bare bush out of horsehair and beaded it into place under the pine trees. Continue reading “Winter Cabin update 1-11”
Bead embroidery update
Happy New Year! I have been working on the night sky of my new beadwork. I am almost done with the sky section and making my plans for the trees. I will be adding a layer to the trunks and sewing in the branches. The layered work is tricky, a lot of it is doneContinue reading “Bead embroidery update”
We have been having an odd winter in North Pole. Last night it was 35 degrees above zero, and raining. Yep, raining. The weather man says it will be above zero for the next week. This makes for poor road conditions but saves on the heating bill. I like that I can hide inside andContinue reading “35 degrees”
Turkey, stuffing, pie…. between cooking and eating I found some time to bead!
Progress on Winter Cabin
We have snow! I managed to get a little beading done between rounds of shoveling earlier this week. We got about 8 inches of new snow. So , I just had to add snow to the cabin roof. Working on the path today, more photos to come.
Bird Watching and Beading
I spent the day shoveling snow, watching birds come to the feeders and beading. All in all a perfect day.
Back to beading
The head swelling has abated. After having two pieces accepted in 64th Parallel, getting Honorable Mention for one of them, finding out that one of them was purchased and getting ready for my Artist of the Month show, I can now settle back into a routine of beading. I finally got around to making aContinue reading “Back to beading”
