I know, I seem to have dropped off the planet. My computer work has gotten quite busy, and the gardening season has been here for a while now. Instead of my cozy winter mornings searching out new art online, I have been making over my perennial beds, digging grass with long white roots, and persistently fighting bindweed vines. Beautiful gardens are indeed a form of art.
My own art is coming along, with a nice boost from my blacksmith friend Will Slagel. He stopped over yesterday to bring more iron stands for the mandalas.
Lily of the Valley is my current favorite, despite the fact that I have to use a purchased stand, and not a custom design by Will. I made this piece with several layers, and so it is too thick to fit in the other stands.
Now my current focus must be getting these out into the world, specifically by finding galleries that would be a perfect fit for my work.
