Under the Wire

I'm writing this in a hurry to get it posted before I leave for my weekend workshop because...

Summer School starts this weekend!

Yes...the encaustic workshop marks the beginning of my self-directed "Summer School", and I'm finally in a place where I can get excited about that because....ta-ta-ta-da!

"Back to the Garden" is essentially finished -- enough that I photographed it and completed my first page on the 15 x 15 blog.  The picture isn't part of the more-on-time submissions post, written earlier today (the administrator lives in the UK, so the time difference is significant -- 7 hours from my home in the Mountain Time Zone).  However, if you click on the "Artists' Gallery 2013" page, you can find me and see it.  I have yet to face it, label it and attach the sleeve, but that will be done early next week so...I can breathe more easily.

And soon I'll be able to reveal all about my Burgess Shale Project piece for SAQA Western Canada.  All the quilting and embroidery has been done save one small detail, and the binding, label and sleeve.  I am to have it finished in the next week and delivered to Patti, the curator of the travelling exhibit, by June 10 -- so stay tuned!

Now I really must finish packing and get outta here!  Have a great weekend!

P.S. and just because I can, I'll link this to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.  :-)

I love your idea of Summer School!

This looks like a beautiful piece. So very delicate... ah, the summer of 1969.

I never liked Summer School as a kid, but your idea sounds wonderful!!
I hope you'll tell us all about the encaustic workshop. I'd love to try that one day!
