I haven't had a lot of art time this past week, seems like there's been a million little things and about 100 big things keeping me out of my play space. But I did manage to squeeze in a little bit of more paper doll playing.
I really am addicted.
This time I stamped 2 different images and then cut the heads off so I could switch them.
Gives me even more opportunities to create some new people.
This gal would also make a good jazz singer I think too. In that long dress she looks like she could be on stage. Maybe not the devil about to poke her though.
I also played some more with Pan Pastels on this page. I'm learning how to use them and how they work!
Love learning new things!
And I've had some other fun this past week in the non-art department.
The other night I got to go see one of my favorite biologists speak at a local theater. It was really interesting and a fun evening out with several of my co-worker friends.
He just published the second book of his trilogy about humans on Earth. I haven't read the book, but I have read some of his other books. Like his ant book. He can make ants fascinating. Who would ever think ants were that exciting? (But they really are. OK I am a GEEK!)
EO Wilson is 85 and still got a lot to say. I'm glad I got to hear him speak.
Before the presentation I did a bit of walking around Portsmouth and came across this pirate.
I saw this fun saying in a window display but had a hard time getting it to photograph clearly.
Think this is still a cool photo.
And here's some last blooms in my garden.
This daisy like chrysanthemum's originally came from my Grandmother's garden, then to my mother's and then some clippings to me. I love how they give some last of summer beauty.
So this weekend I am hoping for some quiet time. I've got a bookshelf to assemble and some books to organize. Plus I want to play in the play space. I need some art time to help me cope with life's challenges (like my 85 year old mother and new administrators at work that are trying to change everything). How about you? Up to anything exciting? Or are you looking for some relaxing down time like me?
