I just read this article today and wanted to share it. It is from the Audubon Society and worth a read! It features the 2019 bird photography winners and a short description of ‘what’s going on’ with the birds in the photos.
It has been quiet here on the blog, but I have been busy behind the scenes. Here is a quick roundup of what I have been up to over the last few weeks.
Hiking in the forest is my cure to de-stress. The trees and birds top my list of reasons why I find nature so restorative. I am deeply inspired by nature, and my glass and watercolor art reflect that inspiration. For 2020, I am spotlighting trees and birds and finding ways to give back.
Glass won’t fade or go stale, but still… let’s have a sale! All remaining glass ornaments in my shop are 20% off. Quantities are limited, and what’s in stock is what is available at this time.
This year, for the rest of December, I am sending out a mini glass heart magnet with each order. No minimum purchase, no special code. It’s my way of saying thank you for your interest in my work, sharing the word, and purchasing my art. ❤️
I enjoyed a recent trip to Seattle for a glass fest called Refract. After watching literally hours of glassblowing by the pros, I thought I would try some glass blowing, too. Even if my set up is micro compared to the big pipes and furnaces.
Bees! I love them in my garden and I love them in my studio. Introducing bee magnets.
Fun: I am doing a few shows at Gonzaga University this fall. The first show was all day on Wednesday this week. Not fun: I also had a little ’emergency’ with my eye.
This has been a busy summer. I split my time between the garden and the studio, which was a nice mix. It was also great overlap for inspiration. Here are a some of the projects I worked on over the last few months.
We recently lost this sweet girl. Feeling adrift, I found solace in my glass studio. I decided to create something in Purl’s memory to help other Greyhounds with medical needs and those hounds that are looking for that forever couch to call their own.
