The maple tree outside my studio is bare. It looks very elegant - Its branches strung with heavy beads of rainwater, and dozens of tiny birds who seem totally jazzed to have found the feeder.
I'm working on some new pieces, which I plan to bring to the annual Beaver Pt. Fair, here on the island this weekend. If you're in the neighborhood, it takes place on the evening of Dec 2, & all day the 3rd and 4th until 4pm. I love this event, and look forward to spending the weekend there every year.
I've also just finished making some hand made gift cards to serve as a really special version of a gift certificate. I made one that I hope will put a little magic into the moment when it's recipient opens it.
I have always believed that one of the best things art can do is to inspire someone else to tap into their own creativity. And, after a few people recently asked about giving the gift of tutoring, workshops, or artwork to their loved ones, I decided to create a menu of ways to make that possible.
If you're interested, or would like detailed information and pricing on any item or service, please give me a call or send an email. I will be able to mail gift certificates until December 16th to most places.
2012 workshop information will be posted in January. The one on one tutoring and creativity sessions are available year round, in person or via Skype.
A happy season to all!
