I kind of think.....

(I hate admitting that anything that can make me so miserable can make such a lovely photo....)

....that the allergy season has hit full force this morning! Woke with eyes scratchy, head plugged, throat tight and it's either the culprit pictured above, or I have a cold. And I seldom get those. I guess I'll *med up* and head for the wet studio today.
Yesterday evening after dinner I headed downstairs and worked on the canvas I had pictured yesterday. Things sort of took on a life of their own in the work process, and I was excited! It is now not at all what I had planned, but it is better than my original idea. Which is one of those serendipitous results that happen when you just let the creativity flow, stay out of the way and allow the piece develop. Maybe I can get a photo later and post it; on the other hand, it would be nice to wait and post when it is done.
Seriously, I am excited about the piece as the parts (which were quite simple) have melded into a fantastic, greater whole!
Now, where's that bottle of allergy medicine......and I hope you have a pollen-free day!

P.S. The fiber piece is still sitting, though other strips were pinned on, getting that part done. I went to quilt on it and again, couldn't find the readers, so when I stitched totally off the strips a couple of times, I figured it could wait another day.
And maybe I'll find the glasses. ;)

Thanks so much! It's always nice to hear; sometimes you think you're just pecking at the keys, talking to yourself.....slowly drifting into delirium..... ;)
Hopefully tomorrow's content will have a little more readable content!
Or good pictures!!!!

Is that flower Queen Anne's Lace? If so, kinda ironic for allergies....Looking forward to seeing this next step of collage. I loved seeing how the other one evolved. Keep thinking marbled flowers - we're planning on doing some next week.....

That *flower* is grass blooming and pollinating in GREAT PROFUSION!!!
Honestly, some grasses are beautiful when they flower, though I about die when taking pics. I think there's a lesson here..... :)
You'll love the collage and I can't wait to see the marbled flowers! So cool!

I still am interested in even the mundane, you know I read every day. Hope you feel better and the time in the "wet" studio pays off.

Really looking forward to seeing the culmination of the fiber pieces. I love how your process work.

I've taken every allergy med I have and have cleared out, so obviously it was *just* that and nothing more. (thankfully)
have been having a BALL with the collage---hope I have it in a state to post tomorrow.
Am going to try again this afternoon with the fiber piece. I think I found my reading glasses, but I could steal a pair from DH.....especially since he's at work...... ;)
