Well, the rainy season has set in for the Pacific Northwest. It's been dark, dreary, and damp the last few days and not good for the waning energy level. I'm dreaming of a sunny vacation somewhere warm and tropical.

I've been playing with acrylic paint and other mixed media lately. I just feel the urge to create with bright, happy, in-your-face color and sometimes I can't get that fix with glass. This is a non-representational piece called "Pink Eye". It's not meant to be anything but abstract color and line design. I also used pastels, watercolor crayon, and india ink on birch plywood. 11.5x10" It was lots of fun and I will continue.

Thanks to all who bid on my "Studio Stash" auction and a big thanks to D., the winner. I will be able to replace my very tired oxy machine soon.

Funny, your dreaming of a warm and tropical vacation and I'm dreaming of a cool and rainy vacation in the northwest. I've actually been sending subliminal messages to my hubby to hopefully one day move there. I just don't know if I can really stay away from the florida sun TOO long... we shall see... one day.
