In my neck of the woods...
I have woven a bit more than 3 inches on the "August" tapestry this past week. That gives me that 'I'm committed to this project' feeling, which is a Good Thing. The bottom half of the tapestry will weave quickly, as it is fairly simple and free of those slowing-me-down fiddley bits. By the time I get to the fiddley bits, I'll be ready to deal with them. That, at least, is my plan.
This is one of the plein aire paintings I did last weekend in Aspen, or rather, above Aspen.
5x7" oil on canvas. Not a masterpiece, but it was fun to do, and it makes me remember sitting in the beautiful aspen forest painting it.
We went to cut wood again this past weekend, and my husband took this picture of Booker and me. I had to crop off my legs, because I had on my painting pants, having painted the cabin kitchen. It was beautiful in the forest, and the aspens are just beginning to have some color. My favorite time of year!
