'Tis the Season

Well... it really isn't 'that' season yet.  At least it doesn't feel like it.  I had my coffee on the deck this morning while enjoying the start of a sky that glowed soft pink everywhere!  It's so mild that it hardly feels like December in Saskatchewan, so doesn't it shock you to look at the calendar and realize you have 2 weeks to Solstice / Christmas!?  The only give away really is that the sky changes colour around 9 am, and by 5pm it's pitch black already.

Lastnight, a family picked up the commissione of the little snowglobe for their small boy.  Oh I WISH I could see his face when he opens it!  I've never met him, but he's only 4 years old, and snowglobes are on the top of his list.  How fun!  : )

I just finished up another commission request in time for the holidays...  I was asked for blonde grasses with the spring crocuses to be framed in white.

I'm having a tough time photographing my work in my new studio.  The bright white spectrum of the lights seem to mess up up camera, and I am unable to get a good sampling of detail and depth with the threads because they are so overlit form all sides.  Time to get a proper photo station for the art!  I shall see what I can come up with.

The crocuses in the foreground are hand dyed silk ribbon with teenie French Knots of yellow.  The matting is WHITE - not greyish bleah.  Again, blame it on the lighting.  It looks so very pretty and fresh in the white.

Crocuses Return, 2015 (sold)

I'll be delivering this one Friday after work.

I have two more threadpaintings 'just because' that are nearly done.  Often I get some last minute calls from customers, so I like to have work on hand for them.

Well done! I love that a four year old will have a snowglobe with your art- lucky little fella.

I got my light box at London Drugs in the camera/photography dept. It may work for what you need, although depending on the size of the framed piece it may not be large enough.
