Finally had my only three 2015 pieces photographed….
BLUE RIDGE FALL will ship to its new owners on Monday. Stained glass, 12″ x 18″
SHIFTING SANDS 1, smalti and millefiori, 12″ x 12″… Next piece will be 1A, as I haven’t finished with this thought yet. I am pondering adding dimension.
SHIFTING SANDS 2, smalti and cosmos, 10″ x 24″
I recently sold the 2008 piece, SOOTHING THE EMBERS OF MY SOUL (mixed media, 24″ x 18″)
Though I find a lot less time in my studio because of the resurgence in the real estate market, I will burn the midnight oil right before Thanksgiving to come up with some small pieces for Christmas at the C’ville Arts Gallery in downtown Charlottesville. I cranked out 20 4″x4″ tiles, selling them for $25 each, which is probably about $20 less than they should be priced… but I enjoy making them and, as always, I learn something every time I do small pieces like this. They are selling pretty well… probably because they are cheap… but I like to think about all of these baby tiles of mine in people’s houses!
I also sold a platter made of broken Fiesta Ware, and I think a vase has sold etc.
It’s very quiet “out there” right now real-estate-wise, and I’m ready for Christmas, so I’ll take advantage of the down time over the next 2 weeks and work in the studio.
