I did this little drawing last night using acrylic paint.

Gate of Heaven
This is a piece I made using an old jewelry box, old sheet music, a rubber heart, a very old key hole, a plastic spider, thread and sewing pins. This box is 10 x 10 x 3.5" deep.

I am working on a series of drawings using thread and sewing. Some by machine and some by hand. Inspired by a conversation with a friend currently working at a wine shop and also inspired by the seedy liquor store in my neighborhood. My favorite part?...giving these dudes stubble. I originally imagined them as a gift bag for wine...that will be the first thing I do with these fellas (and party girls) I just got started so I'm sure other good things will come - and even if this is just for my entertainment and sewing pleasure, by golly - it's totally worth it!

I am ready to make time for art. Summer has been great for hanging out on the front porch, drinking iced coffee and drawing on the back of old unpaid bills. I mostly sew these days and love it...and I won't stop - I just miss the natural high I get from painting. I get excited even writing about it.
