I just bought new laundry hampers, so I thought this would be a great time to post one of my newest pieces. Even more perfect, as I rush to get this into the blog before Kev and I go to Vermont for the weekend, the washing machine downstairs beeps away letting me know the laundry is done.

This piece is a mix of ink and collage, entitled
My Mother Used to Cut My Paper Dolls. (The shorts on the far right are collage). I think I like this piece much better than the original piece from which this was expanded upon.

You know what? I have so much more to write about this, but Kev and I need to get to Vermont, so I will leave myself with a list and I will finish when I come back on Sunday.

I finished this particular piece on Thursday night.

Darn. Note to self. Numbering doesn't work so well next to images. So here is my list:

• Pricing work in general
• The original design
• My work as a reflection on everyday life
• There are more of these yet unfinished and each has the possibility of being a bit different
• Size
• Should I sell this on Etsy?
• The first two are in the mail to the Museum School. More on that later.

To Concord, Vermont we go!

Day One

So I have decided to start an art blog. I feel like maybe if I can get my art online, I will feel like I am doing something. I am not much of a writer, so don't plan on coming here to read too much, but come here to look at stuff I make (and maybe sometimes stuff that inspires me). With that in mind, I don't create something new each day or even each week, so I don't know how often it will be updated. So, add it to a reader and you'll be kept up-to-date.

Until I scan some stuff, you can see a couple of things about me:
  1. Here is my web site. It is badly in need of an update. It's only some of my old design work. Some day I swear to put more of my best artwork up there too, but since I don't like web designing too much, I haven't been too inspired. A couple of years ago, my great need for a new website inspired this one.
  2. I also sell stuff on etsy under buzzbuzzbee. (Thanks for introducing me to Etsy, Martha!) Here's some stuff from my shop below:

Buy Handmade

Oh, I guess I can't add another number after this. Oh well. I wish I remembered my HTML. But I don't. Well maybe I will scan those couple of projects I did this week later tonight, if Kevin doesn't put my rowing machine computer back on the rower.
