This summer has just flown by! I am not complaining because as soon as the end of summer hits then all the Halloween stuff comes out, and that makes me very excited.
Another exciting moment, I sold all 5 of my Lady Bud Vases! This is the first clay work that I have sold. I might have to make more of these soon.
The next clay project that I am working on are these Dragon Eggs. I am going to make one for each of the elements (earth, air, fire, water, and I might add a spirit dragon in). This first one is my Water Dragon. (It is finished now so if you would like to see more up to date photos follow me on Instagram.)
Here is the design for the Fire Dragon. The neat thing that I haven't pointed out is they open up so you can put little trinkets in them.
I finally finished another page for my Mini-Drawing/Paintings.
Over the summer Chris Cornell from Soundgarden passed away. I shared this charcoal and graphite drawing I did of him when I was about 16 or 17 years old.
We tried Pho for the first time and loved it!
We planted a tree with my Mom's ashes on her birthday. This tree is in my sister's backyard. My sister picked out a Crab Apple Tree. I can't wait to see the blossoms from it!
All 3 of us kids helped push the dirt back in to cover the ashes.
The very next day my niece got married. We had such a great time at this wedding. A really great thing that happened, there was another wedding party outside by the pool of the country club. As it got dark out it started to rain, this poor couple lost most of their cake and a lot of their decorations to the rain. My sister went down and invited them up to share the ballroom with us. We had such a blast!
At the end of July, my sister and 2 of our cousins, took a girl trip to St. Augustine. We ended up at the Fountain of Youth and there were a bunch of peacocks hanging around. This guy was just sitting there posing for me.
