Standard Garden bugs



No, certainly not high art, but a whole lot of fun while I am trying to get some creative juices flowing. I started one of these while in the van on a road trip (Note: I was not driving). Until I can have a larger block of time in the studio, this has been my way of keeping in the wool! They are pretty cute and I think I might have a couple more in me. I have some concepts percolating and some other things going on to consider and this is great filler.
I have a bag to complete (it's coming, Cindy!), a few pieces to create for the purpose of entering into the Agnes Etherington Rental library. Whether they end up there or elsewhere remains to be seen, but the sketches I made are truly calling to me. I also need to make a healthy stack of scarves for my galleries and samples for my fall classes very soon. Nice to have a plan but still enough space in between to allow for some creative time, long lunches and conversations with artist friends and creative energy.

My first thought was these certainly are not "standard" garden bugs but then began remembering strange and colorful creatures I have seen crawling among the plants in my flower gardens and changed my mind. Your art makes me think. I like that about your work.
