Tiny Adventures Close To Home

It boggles the mind to realise it is already two-thirds of the way through July. I canNOT really say where the Time has gone, but I DO know it's been sweet and simple time.

In my continuing intent to keep my Life within my Present means, I have spent some pretty amazing time here in the Wee Cottage creating and just BEing.

For 2013 Year of the Giraffe, July has been all about sculpture. NOT something I've had any experience with, but remarkably that matters NOT one smidge.

And in the continuing Adventure that is Mail Me Some Art, I have found another way to combine Giraffe-ing and MMSA-ing in creating a wee "zine" for an upcoming swap.

I spent the bulk of yesterday and some of today creating this Now ready-to-BE folded and cut Collaging & Digital Fiddling Giraffes Zine. It's been fun, challenging in the best of ways, and encouraging.

I've also been discovering that sculpture is NOT that far outside the "box" of skills and capabilities I already have; truly an incentive to keep working things out, bit by slow bit.

I have explored soft sculpture...

And I have also been busy with 2 papier-mache-ish sculptures and several wire and what-have-you sculptures. [pictures TK, I promise ;~D]

It's a good summer as summers go; quiet, productive, relaxing, and spent enJOYing each and every day like juicy mangoes!!
