NEW WORK

Today is a hugely exciting day–drum roll, please! I received and have started to post my new professional photos of my recent body of work!!   I’m very pleased with how the Photographer captured my work as always, and would like to make a semi-public thank-you to my long-time friend …

Bjorn–Otha People’s Art 3

    It’s been a chilly and eventful past few weeks since my last posting–minor personal injury, Hurricane Sandy, and the happiest possible outcome (in my little opinion) for the 2012 American Presidency have kept me occupied aside from my usual internet research and work. I’m so thankful to have …

Kiss(ed)–Otha People’s Art 2

  I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars, And the pismire is equally perfect, and a grain of sand, and the egg of the wren, And the tree toad is a chef-d’oeuvre for the highest, And the running blackberry would adorn the …

Krampus

    With the noticeably shorter days, my thoughts have turned to the Dark Side, ha ha. My step-brother, Bill, is also getting ready for Hallowe’en and the phote of himself decked out in a devilish ensemble inspired today’s musing–Krampus.   Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we’ll have to wait …

Send in the Pros! But mostly AGO.

It’s hard to believe that my last blog entry was from mid-September! It’s continued being a “gitterdone” kind of month, I’m happy to report. I decided that it was time to send in the Pros to take over my photography conundrums and I’m so excited to see my first batch …

Orange You Alright

With Autumn officially being upon us now, my studio view has increasingly become peppered with the bright and bold hues of Fall–it’s gorgeous and quite inspiring! It’s got me thinking a little about colour. And design. And gemstones (which isn’t exactly a new revelation for me, lol). But anyways.  It’s …

Otha People’s Art (Part 1)

    You’ve probably heard the idiom “Everyone has at least one good book in them”. And for certain, we all have our journeys that make for an interesting story or two (written or otherwise)–we are all Artists in a very Post-Modern and diverse sensibility (Po-Mo-ing which sometimes verges on …

Some of My Favourite Fall Things

    The past few days have been rainy and downright chilly at my Muskoka retreat! Being Sunday , I spent the day officially making the change-over from Summer to Fall, cleaning and packing up my Summer hats and t-shirts and breaking out the heavier sweaters, coats and other cold …

Rose Coloured…Quartzes!

Just as I predicted in an earlier post(lol), it’s been a magnificent September thus far in the land of Me! Lots of amazing projects are well underway and the last of my equipment needed for the final stretch of my GIA studies has arrived! For any other budding Gemologists, I’m …

La Lune

    Ah, Labour Day, that somewhat ominous unofficial finale to the glory of Summer is finally upon us–sigh. I confess that the little school girl inside of me still gets a little nervous and excited about this time of year–a time that is all about reaping the bounty of …
