A Weekend's Worth of Work

How's that for alliteration? This weekend I haven't left my house because I'm so afraid I'll get the flu or the H1N1 virus. Even though I'm a high risk patient no one has been able to give me shots. It's really to the point where I'm angry. I've even called the Health Dept. Anyway, I have to go to the grocery store or the cats and I will starve. My plan is to go early tomorrow, before the crowds and wash my hands like crazy.

Well, back to art. While I've been on self imposed exile, I've read a lot of the polymer clay book Color Inspirations. It contains enough information to be a class, with at least ten sessions. I think I'm going to do some of the exercises because they will help me be more informed about color for my art work, and for polymer clay, which I'm forcing myself to put on the back burner.

acrylic, paper, markers

This is one of the things I've worked on, but it looks so much more interesting in person because of the layers.

I hope you have all had a good weekend, maybe productive, maybe not...depending on your plans. If I haven't answered your comments or left them on your blog it's not because I'm not reading everything. I'm still checking in on my favorites and lots of others, too. When I know that you all are reading my blog it gives me more energy to paint, so thanks!!

Love your work Deborah. I've had my H1N1 shot. We are lucky as the government has supplied the shots free for every resident of Australia. Hope you get yours soon.

Hi Deborah,
just a blog hopper happened upon yours and love your honesty and especially love the stamped ladies. Beautiful.

So that was the addition waiting to be added in the previous post.

What scary yet colorful bug!

Oh, and if it makes you feel any better, I didn't get my flu shot either.
