2011 – and . . .

gosh it is already March and I have not posted anything! Well, I have been up to my ears in “stuff” to do.  Unfortunately all work related and of course, taxes – ugh.  But completed most of it and now I have some “me” time and that means “art time”.

I have been busy working on some gourds and just came back from the gourd show in East Palatka.  What a wonderful show.  It seemed a bit smaller but the vendors were all terrific.  I  purchased more gourds and lots of supplies. Some of my favorite gourd farmers were there – Tom from Mississippi, Ghost Creek Gourds and Pumpkin Hollow.  I am working up some new designs and when fall comes around I should be ready for the shows.

Here are a few photos taken last week when we had some very foggy mornings but lots of bird activity on the river.  This is the first spoonbill I have seen on the shoreline since Hurricane Francis & Jean.
