Off again

Off to the airport to welcome my last group of the summer.  The sunflowers are in high bloom and the festivals and flea markets are in high gear so we should have a great week. My mom (who is 87 and traveled here by herself!) has been here all week and we’ve had a fun time. Been to music concerts, markets, a French dinner party of 15!, and a day trip to Andorra. The wildflowers blooming in the Pyrenees were gorgeous.

I’ve been disciplined this summer with my “drawing a day” and have a journal full to use in some fashion when I get back into the studio.

After the workshop I plan to take my mom to the Amphora Museum near Narbonne. The shape of amphoras is something that attracts me in polymer clay work (pendants) and in a series of fabric collages. Here’s a couple.
