As an expert procrastinator, I’ve been participating in Kristi’s Make It Happen! Monday, at Addicted2Decorating. It’s been great to finish some of those ‘hanging-around-never-done’ projects every week, or two 😉 I’m sure it’s because I commit to it here — a big thank-you to Kristi.
I got an assortment of clear glass for the ‘Winter Ice‘ panel — there’s a variety of different textures & a couple are iridescent.
I also got other supplies that I’d run out of — flux, putty, solder, etc. so I was totally ready — & inspired — to proceed! Each day, I did a few pieces, until . . .
This is the first abstract, in a series of four, for a glass show in early August. I am relating glass colours, styles, & shapes to [my version of] each season of the year.
With all the glass cutting & leading finished, Summer Heat will be soldered & puttied tonight. I had lots of fun finding & shaping sections of the glass where there appeared to be a flame of fire.
I always associate summer with higher temperatures — thanks to growing up in southern Alberta where the prairies meets the Rocky Mountain foothills. Man, summer is HOT in Calgary — when they’re not getting hail or lightning storms! 😀
The summer temperature is why I prefer not to visit then & it is why I live on the west coast where we enjoy a much more temperate climate all year long — no cold winters & no blistering summers.
And, in order to be ready for the gallery show, I must have either Spring Joy or Autumn Gold well on it’s way — the July 29th deadline for all four is quickly approaching!
Again, I need to commit to getting some posts on finished projects written — I am even more woefully behind. Get to it, girl!
Yeah right! I’m afraid new posts might ONLY consist of these Monday updates until after the gallery submission. 😆
Check back next Monday [July 23rd] to see how I do at Making It Happen.
