just things

I have so much on my my mind lately.  Good things, bad things and wishful thinking.  Maybe Arnold could take over?

Since the class a couple of weekends ago I haven't created anything, but have prepared my glass to create some art. My space is ready with measured and cut glass, I have downloaded reference pictures from a great site, that allows artists to refererence the photographs without having to worry about breaking any copyright laws.  All that's needed is to create a login account and the array of photos to reference are plenty. 

Sometimes when I get tired of drawing tedious little lines to create a picture, I just have fun throwing things together to create an abstract.  This particular piece was created towards the end of class, put into a tiny little kiln all by itself, and the kiln malfunctioned. The kiln shut down before it got hot enough for a full fuse, creating this textured piece instead,  I call that a "happy accident".  I even brought this piece into my cubicle at my day job because I love rubbing my hands over it. As of March 1st, I will be in my cubicle for 15 years, and this is the first personal item I have placed in my area besides a plant someone gave me as a gift.  I always thought I would hit the lottery so I didn't want to have to pack up stuff off my desk.... :) Just kidding, there really isn't any space for personal items.

Last night I had to go shopping for a new dress for a business luncheon today. My closet is full of pretty dresses, but they're all in different sizes, and I seem to have outgrown the last size dress I own. I was determined to go bold, I wanted a red dress. Ok so I ended up with a deep red, almost maroon color, and since it was sleeveless, my arms looked like cottage cheese under the fluorescent lights, so I had to buy a cover up...  anyway, I was pleased with my purchase.
