I was in Colorado most of the summer, avoiding the New York City heat and humid as much as possible. I found being away from my NYC studio caused me to take a short hiatus from creating fine art. Instead, I found myself doing more “crafty” art projects, enjoying the break and exploring different artistic challenges. I thought I’d share a few of these projects with you.
Sketching shells while visiting friends in Nantucket.
Helping my oldest daughter create a sequin wall in her new apartment (though I did more of the planning, cutting and painting while she did most of the actual pinning). I’m not sure her thumb will ever recover.
Spray-painting a bronze bed to make it white one.
Assembling “do it yourself” furniture for my younger daughter’s room…putting together a dresser, a chair, a desk, a side table, and a bed frame while adding funky knobs to the dresser.
And lastly, sewing myself five new wrap-around skirts
I hope your summer was as restful and recharging as mine was!
