Fall again in Florida

It is hard to imagine that it has been a year since my last entry. Quite a bit going on here in sunny Florida. I've had two knee replacement surgeries this year which have slowed me down somewhat. I am on the mend now and looking forward to 2012 as I have been juried into ArtFest Ft. Myers. This is a huge show and I am hoping to have several new pieces to present there. Recently I have been focusing on smaller works with a stained glass effect. This has been fun as I can step away from my realistic approach and focus on the design in a small space. Each original is just 5"x7"!! The two dragonfly ones are particularly meaningful to me as the dragonfly reminds us of the new body we are given after death which prevents us returning to earth (The Water Bug & the Dragonfly Parable) So enjoy the new pieces and I hope to see you at the Ft. Myers show.
