New Work

Even with all the snow days that we've had here in New England, I've been too busy to get into the studio every day this winter, but I did finish a piece last night that I am very happy with. 

All those little dark spots in the piece are ceramic figures:
A pill bottle I found on the beach in Eastport, ME

A sweet little owl that I found at Nesting on Main

a bear
and a rose
 I also wanted to share a window that I finished at the end of last year but never managed to photograph until now:

A New Window for a New Year

Last fall, while on an antique hunt with Shelley White - my friend and flower artist extraordinaire (you can see her beautiful work over at her blog Bow Street Flowers)- I found a beautiful 4 foot by 2 foot antique cabinet door at the New England Demolition and Salvage in New Bedford, MA. (NOTE: Check this amazing place out before it closes! -- they are trying to sell the business, but if they cannot they will end up closing).  
Here is what I did with that cabinet door:

This piece is a promise of spring as we face another big snow storm here in New England.
