Today I was empowered. I had issues with my computer, which I determined to be a modem issue. We happened to have a new modem laying around (who does that?!!), and I was able to connect the new one up. But alas, it didn't allow me to connect to the internet, so a call to the high speed internet provider, an hour of my time later, and still no internet connection. Remember the low battery problem from many months ago . . . well, after J patiently walked me through how to open up the computer, I located the battery, went and got a new one, came home, installed it, went through the process to connect the new modem to our provider and walla! I am able to post a new entry on my blog today! The whole point to all these words is I am not a computer tech person, none of this is in my realm of comfort, but it all came together with help over the phone and I did it!!! I don't feel smart per se, but I do feel a little bit less intimidated! Ahhh, let's get on to art where I am much more comfortable!! The pieces posted are a hodgepodge of things I have worked on and am currently working on. I don't normal post works in progress, but what the heck!
The purple container is a favorite piece of mine that I recently dropped on the floor. I was fortunate in that it only broke along the edge so in contemplating how to rescue it, I was able to glue the pieces together and then solder over the cracks to create this cool metal against ceramic look! I actually like it better now!
The little altered tin is a piece I have been playing with for a bit, I love the colors on this piece.
The book cover is from a book from the 1880's I picked up as one of my treasures from Paris to the Moon last Friday. It is in process, but I love the direction it is going in.
And Tamsie, the last piece is the one from you. Nothing is committed on this piece yet, but I like the feel to the direction it is going in.
So, that's some of what I have been touching in the Little Art Room in the Back lately. I have a few other things in process, but thought you might enjoy a peek into a little corner of my world. Today has been a good day . . .
