IN THE STUDIO THIS WEEK

There were quite a bit of odds and ends done this week along with the task of shortening the "to do" list. 

 "Missing Windows" was finally completed.  Yarns similar in color to the hooked wool were used for whipping the edges and nails were hand-stitched to the black window portions.  I am sealing the doorplate that will be used to sign the piece and will stitch it on this coming week.


Here you can see the various colors used in the dark window sections.  I used nails that I collected when builders were working on the studio.  I love the different shapes and the paint and plaster attached to some of them.


Quite a bit of paperwork was done preparing folders for classes, calls and e-mails were made for permission to use photos of other artists' work and planning was made for a panel discussion to be held at the TIGHR conference in October.


I worked on framing for pieces being shipped to Sauder Village for the Plein Air group exhibit.  I also tested frame sizes for the two section piece "Bridging the Gap".  On the table to the left and the far right you can see books sitting on top of backing paper glued to the back of framed works.  After the glue sets, a box cutter will be used to trim extra paper, the work will be signed, hanging wire will be installed and the work will then be ready to pack.


Photos of various works were taken with lighting attached to ladders and poles.  Hey, there's that broom from the paperwork photo above.  It sure does get around!

Though there is still quite a bit of work to do, it felt good to get some items crossed off this week.  Check off some of your own "to do" list items, enjoy your accomplishments and have a great day.
