It's been a busy week here - filled with all sorts of summer activities and outings with my little urchins. While they watch tv or color, I sneak upstairs to the studio for a few stolen moments
to position tea bags and rusty bits on paper
and check on their progress.
My book of tea
has been added to
and then added to again.
A cover has been chosen
and artsy photos of it have been taken.
Space has been left...for words, marks, pictures,
or as quiet moments on a page.
Now...time for the fun part...the celebration part of this 300th post. As a thank you to you for finding my blog and coming back to visit...well, basically for making the 300th post possible, I'm giving away my book of tea.
If you'd like to have a chance to win it, just leave a comment on this post by 5 am (USA New York city time) on Thursday, August 9 letting me know to add your name to the hat. Include a way for me to contact you. If you'd care to share a few thoughts on tea and/or rust, that would be wonderful. When the little urchins wake next Thursday, I'll have them draw a name and will post the lucky winner by noon.
Oh! I have a bit of exciting news. If you happen to find yourself in my neck of the woods this Sunday, stop by Silvermine Arts Center for the opening reception of Collective Vision.
One of my large rust beauties, Echoes of Stillness, is in the Impermanent Markings portion of the show. I snapped this shot quickly on Wednesday while retrieving the piece that wasn't accepted. Hopefully, I'll get a better shot on Sunday.
