A monster break...

Here's a detail of my collage, "Our Lady of the Old Tomatoes" up now at the Mt. Royal Tavern's annual Foodscape show! To see an image of the whole piece, click HERE! Its really good for me to take a break from the sewing machine every once in a while to delve back into materials I used to love to use. I remade this piece about three times, as it took me a while to get back into the swing of things. I don't think I'll ever tire of cutting paper. Working on this project really made me want to do more 2-d work! Maybe later this summer...

In addition to cutting and recutting tiny paper scraps, I've been spending the past two weeks getting ready for our Maestro Sensational puppet variety show at Artscape...pics to come! So far I've constructed a giant (8 ft?) suit, cut and painted ocean/grass flats, hot-glued a handful of sock puppets, re-painted the hand puppet stage and cut paper signage for all the acts! And there is still so much more to do! Only four days away, the pressure is ON!

Teaching arts and crafts at a recreation center in the city has also been keeping me busy. Right now we are making an army of cardboard box robots!

Yikes..Maybe next week I'll get a few full days in the sewing room!
