This is what I have spent the last 2 days of captivity doing! My collage of guess what? Sunflowers...ahhhh, me and Van Gogh...but at least it has me seeing life in Color, since outside the studiio window it is all WHITE!


A little french sunflower...

Hello Fellow Bloggers...
For those of you with lots of snow, like us here in the NW...thought a nice sunflower would warm you up. HOW DO you that live in the mid-west or east do all the snow and cold? My boots are off to hardy people!!
In January of 2007, I decided that I wanted to start painting, I have been a crafter, jewelry maker, collager (is that a word?), sculpter and really wanted to paint. love of sunflowers led me to paint about 14 pieces from 2"x2" to 40"x40"...and then I ran out of room in the house to hang them. I'm in the process of making them into greeting cards...
Being snowed in for the last 6 days, I have been in the studio working on a collage...of sunflowers naturally...they are my 'haystacks'...but unlike van Gogh, I will not cut off my ear, no matter what.

My sister and I have been on a baking binge for days! We were going to have a 'cookie exchange'...but it won't stop now all we can do is pass by the GREAT treats we baked and do another taste test...please I beg of you, send HELP! We must be stopped...

anyway, today finds me in my studio, working on a new collage...lots of red, lots of papers, lots of glue...the point is I am having fun, and isn't that the point of all of this?

This is me doing a very important 'taste' test.

more later Kristine
