Studio time...

I've been enjoying studio time this week. It's treacherous to walk outside right now...
that's the street, under the snow, no plowing around here
 So I find joy going up to my little studio these days...with my little shadow...
It's all about me...
I am obsessed with my cattails in winter piece, but took some time out to do Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks in reds. I like the chandelier pattern from
I made 8 blocks in various reds, with various white/cream colored backgrounds. I plan to do about 8-10 in each color this year, then figure out how to make them into an artistic composition. That didn't stop me from playing with the block arrangements now...
I like this one but it will change when there are greens, and oranges, and purples, etc
So those blocks are packed away waiting for next month's color and I'm back to the improv snow scene...I tidied up mid-way as I found myself trying to cut a free form curve with little pieces of white all over the table.
I make components, then put them on the wall, move them around, etc. It's really joyful as well as working with shades of the season. Well, gotta get back to work... later gators!
