Series of stitch meditations

Occasionally I will find myself working in a series.   This one relates back to my childhood in a little mining town in Nevadas high desert.    Just a stones throw from Virginia City, my home town of Silver City was a fun place to be a child. We could walk to school. No traffic. No stop signs, just cross the street and climb the hill by friends house, turn left and continue to walk uphill to crest where the two room schoolhouse stood.     In winter we could ride our sleds down the snow covered streets.    The town is still there. Some of our friends and their descendants still live there. Its this place that taught us the beauty of simple things, and vintage things. Reliance on family.

Friday rocks

I am painting rocks each morning this week.    We are having a heat spell.   Days 100 degrees mostly with a few ups and downs.   So evenings the dogs and I spend in the garden. But mornings are for painting if I am home. 

This is really fun. You never know quite what to expect.

Theres no need for me to explain this as you can check youtube for lots of easy ideas for painting rocks.

Politics suck

After the ongoing furor over the children of immigrants being separated from their families and detained in goverment facilities ...I need to do an art piece that says.   I CARE.  DON`T YOU?  This in response to our first ladies' poor judgement (or her staff's.) by selecting her jacket to wear to visit these children.     I hope to share this here soon.
