What is it?

 My world was full of skeptics when I told thim that this was going to be a bird bath?  Doesn't anyone have creative vision anymore?

I have finished the fountain that consumed me for the entire spring.

I was gifted with an absolutely gorgeous piece of driftwood 4 ft. long with several holes in it.  It took me a while to come up with this. 

It is in the garden now and looking lovely; actually a bit like something out of Raiders of the Lost Ark!  The bowls are kitty litter bucket bottoms draped with gray Paverpol.  The catch basin has a Paverpol framed screen to catch leaves and disguise the bucket.   Very effective.

Meanwhile, back in the studio...........

I found a whole bunch of little metal display frames, post card size, at a garage sale and am making a bunch of bead studies.  They can be slipped out of the frames to be matted and framed any way you like as the edges are all finished.  They are wonderfull samples for ideas of larger works.  The ideas are starting to come.

looks a bit dull, I really do have to sharpen up my camera skills

I have a new shoe started which will incorporate a couple of polymer clay frogs.  Another dicipline I will have to learn.  This art is uphill all the way!!

I am going to sit out in the garden with my DH for a bit, then back to the studio.

Love to all.
