Saturday we had a great ikebana class where we arranged zinias, and some other lovelies that I can't name.
It's the end of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I learned a lot this month about lowering expectations, working through a theme and how to put different materials together. It was a great idea generator to get me back in the studio and break through the paralysis of starting a new project. I'm ready to be done and move on to making some less challenging work for a while. On to making some bags out of kimono fabric for the Creative Hand Show and Sale in November!
