Hello at last!

It's been a long time since I've added a post here, but the time has come!  
I'm off soon to visit a dear friend in Spain and to see the work of Gaudi (at last!)!  The anticipation is uncomfortable.  It is so much better for me not to imagine what a trip will be like so that I am surprised and happy with whatever comes my way.  But I have wanted to visit Barcelona for so long that I can't help it: my hopes are high!
I'll focus my mind on other (related) topics and show you a few of the things that I have made while I've been away from the blog.  Unfortunately, I haven't even been very good at photographing my work before it goes out the door, so this is just a small sampling:
Here's a lamp I made for my brother. (I used gold leaf over silk on the shade!)

A couple of transom shaped windows that I let go without proper pictures!

One more shot of the sunflower transom.

A piece I just finished and sent off to the gallery.

A first: a glass tabletop made for a friend's newly remodeled porch.
In other news....
I've also been on a trip to the Czech Republic since I last posted.  It was a glorious week in April with a promise of spring around every corner.  We stayed with good friends and explored parts of southern Bohemian we had not seen in the past.  Here are a few shots from that trip:

Do you see that village way down below?  That's where we had lunch -- and, yes, we had to hike back up!

A beautiful day in Prague.

We had to visit Vysehrad for old time's sake (we used to live just below this church).

  1. Your new work is stunning! And this little peek into your Bohemian adventures--such a tease! Can't wait to hear/see more, and to hear all about Barcelona, too!

  2. Thank you, Gigi, dear. Eager to see your gardens!!
