I have been awash in the busy-ness of Christmas shows, and for most of them I have been displaying my glass and metal jewelry work with the odd painting included for color and space. But by some Divine fluke (my perspective), the last show I entered I found out only after I registered that I wouldn’t be able to show jewelry due to the number of other jewelry exhibitors. Hmmmm….mild panic. This is what the majority of my stock has consisted of. So, to ensure that I had sufficient items to show, I knew I had to get painting and to have prints made of some of my work. This is something that I’ve been meaning to do for a long time but just had not got around to it. I figure this is the Universe’s way of nudging me in a particular direction. So, off to the drafting board I went. With not much time, I decided to create this small series of tiny paintings.
Of course as I worked I got more ideas and decided to turn them into ornaments, along with the prints and cards I had done up. And yes, I did end up pulling an “all-nighter” to get them done for the show. Some things are hard to change I guess.
