Hi everyone. My question today (as it is many days) is "Where is this week going to?"
Yesterday (Wednesday) I was home all day and finished going through and sorting out my craft books, which is my project of the week. I cleaned out about 1/3 of them, which made lots of space for new books. Or not. :)
I also made a tag for Tag Tuesday. The latest challenge is texture.
I started by covering a tag with some white burlap. Then I dropped some green and blue alcohol ink onto it and rubbed it with a baby wipe. Once it all dried, I stapled a piece of twine and also this lock shaped long armed pin. And I added the little palm tree charm.
And my garden is starting to look rich and summery.
The lupines are in bloom and today I noticed the first of the rose buds had opened up.
And my irises are looking amazing.
Of course in my big garden the weeds are taller than the flowers. :)
And I have a few more photos from my visit to the Portland Museum of Art on Tuesday.
This piece was called porch cushion. I thought it really was a cushion, until I read the plaque about it which explained it was made from wood. It did look real. I'm not saying it isn't really well done and it took talent to make, but I don't get what makes it museum quality. I guess I don't know enough about modern art to understand it.
And the museum had a couple of Juan Miro paintings.
As well as this interesting Magritte.
This was a cool wall covered in sheets of music and painted.
And finally they had this Mary Cassatt piece. She is a famous American painter who specialized in women and children. I particularly like the background.
I'm not sure if this is considered a finished piece or not.
Anyhow, hopefully you enjoyed the views.
And I'm glad you stopped by and visited.
