It occurs to me that summer is passing so quickly and soon my leisurely mornings of sipping coffee in my little studio or lingering on the back screened porch listening to the birds and watching our Great Danes frolick in the back yard, will give way to reality and the rush of getting out the door on time for the school days! I've been thinking about some of the projects that I have done in the past, and how my style has evolved. I am an old soul at heart. I love to include so much of the wonderful things of our pasts in my art. I'm love going through my collection of old papers, buttons, laces, and ephemera. My mind wanders to contemplate what the owners of such wonderful objects did during their days. I think I would have been perfectly at home living in those days.
