A couple of months ago, Kristi, at Addicted2Decorating introduced Make It Happen! Mondays — a great way to finish some of those ‘hanging-around-never-done’ projects. It’s been quite an eye-opener for me — success or not!
Last week, I revealed my first gallery abstract, Summer Heat [soldered version right]. I had lots of fun choosing & shaping glass sections to represent fire flames.
This is the first abstract, in originally a series of four, for a “Glass Only” gallery art show in early August.
I started out relating glass colours, styles, & shapes to [my version of] each season of the year.
I WAS supposed to be revealing Winter Ice this week but this is as far as I’ve got:
I had a VERY upsetting week — emotional distress that drains me of energy & creativity. The kind of week that has me started on a whole series of articles on Dawne Thoughts, where I explore more personal matters — watch for them over the coming weeks.
I did get a bit more glass work done Monday & will work on it more tonight but I certainly realize now that I’ll be lucky to get 3 entries in the art show, never mind the maximum 4 glass projects. 😐
So, of course, I HAVE to finish Winter Ice this week — the last day to hand in the gallery pieces is SUNDAY ! ! 😛
I might have to change the names to reflect the matter it represents & drop any reference to the seasons — i.e. Summer Heat becomes Fire & Winter Ice simply becomes Ice. If I do get Ice completed, . . . I MIGHT have time make a smaller third abstract, . . . MAYBE
Still, I thank my lucky stars that I’ve been invited to participate in this gallery exhibition in the first place. Something IS better than nothing.
I definitely will NOT be worried about getting some posts on finished projects written — absolutely no time for that!
And yes, I’m even a full day late posting this on Tuesday rather than Monday — I was excited to be Nana for a friend’s sweet little grand-daughter celebrating her 1st birthday.
Check back next Monday [July 30th] to see how I do at Making It Happen — what will I submit to the art gallery?
