This is the view from a friend's porch on New Year's Day, 2018. Western North Carolina was gifted a bitter cold and icy start to the year. There are several ways one could look at that - either 2018 will be an utter bitch, or the year is taking a tip from Mother Nature and freezing out the vermin. Let's hope for the latter!
Holidays always interfere with work in the studio, however, I have managed a little bit of work on little bits of mosaic.
I did finish the pears (titled Harvest), and got most of the glass done on the poppy (titled, unimaginatively, Poppy). These are both 5" x 7", and I have one more to start in that size, which is a Carolina Wren. We have lots of those darling little birds that hop around on our deck and tease the cats. As sweet as they look, when they open their mouths you feel as if you have just been cussed out by the neighborhood crank. My kind of bird!
Hope you all had a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve. Here's to a wonderful, art-filled 2018!
