Celebration Circle’s Altar Show – my altar second from left


A transformed treasure in progress to benefit the Salvation Army

It’s round-up time at the ol’ Studio – here’s a round-up of what’s been happening. This evening at 6:00 is the opening reception for Celebration Circle’s Altar Show at the Bijou.  Here’s a link to the article, and you’ll notice that my King of the Wood is front and center – yay! Come bid on one or several for a good cause.

Also coming up is the Transformed Treasures show benefiting the Salvation Army. I figure if one King of the Woods is good, two is better, so I used the same idea on the cabinet I’m transforming for the auction event later this month at Oak Hills Country Club. I found a blah cabinet at the downtown Salvation Army store and am turning it into a piece of furniture art. Here’s the top door of that piece, soon to be finished (I hope).

Other fun things – the Spirit Box article for Cloth Paper Scissors is out in the current issue and there’s a workshop on just that subject at the Studio this afternoon – yay!

“The Cat’s Pajamas” Random dyed felted wool, feathers, cotton fabric with heat transfer, embellishments

The Fiber Artists of San Antonio are always huge supporters of the Transformed Treasures show. speaking of which, I finished a piece for their juried show coming up in October. I used an accidentally-felted sweater and turned it into a wall hung fiber artwork piece called The Cat’s Pajamas. I need to add a couple of silver fish to it, but it’s almost finished and I had a blast constructing it. Hope the juror likes cats and has a sense of humor.

And finally, I’ll be announcing the details about this workshop on Tuesday, but Michelle Belto and I are collaborating on a fantastic all day collage and encaustic project called Wax and Wings. It will be give twice, once on Saturday, September 21st and once on Saturday October 5th. Email me for Early Bird details.

Here’s a preview of Wax and Wings – and happy holiday weekend, everyone!
