I have a confession to make:
I am not a summer person.
I have a friend who loves summer so much, we call her "Summer Girl".
She loves the beach, being on Cape Cod, the ocean and walking in the sand.
I love air conditioning and fans, being inside and emerging on a cool day,
catching up on projects, and looking out at my tiny garden outside my porch.
So, my joy list today is about INSIDE projects!
I've been working on framing some prints I've had squirreled away for years.
I worked in an art and framing gallery in New York, so I've purchased a mat
cutter and tools over time and set up shop on my dining room table!
This is a cute card I found in my travels - don't know the artist.
It makes me smile.
This is a print of a painting by a friend. The light switch determined the hanging space.
I love Chagall!
We bought this poster the weekend my daughter's wearable technology work was exhibited
at MOMA. We visited that museum and the Met - a great memory!
Love this Matisse print!
And some Georgia O'Keefe flowers in 2 different rooms.
Using ready-made frames and cutting mats myself saved a lot of money.
My husband gave me full rein to choose the artwork. (great guy!)
Another whimsical project - adapting a t shirt!
This inexpensive cotton shirt has a lot of beige in it, which
is NOT a color that looks good on me.
So, I stretched it over a plastic bin cover and have started "coloring" it in
with some fabric paints, which will be permanent when I heat-set them.
I'm not being too careful, so progress is fast. I'm planning to make it "my"
colors - pinks, reds, purples and greens. I'll let you know how it comes out!
So, my joy list is
Being productive in the summer heat
Enjoying my air conditioned house
Preparing for a special visitor this week
Having fun with painting
Hope you have a wonderful week!
