Even More BEES Please!

sketchbook page my sketchbook shows many things of my life...including giant bees, no kidding....i saw bees as big as small hummingbirds in indonesia this past winter.....luckily they did not seem to sting....
6 x 6 inch glass dish

and i have been digging the whole bee scene for awhile now....since last year for sure....we have a boat named "honeybee" and then my talented friends with a kid's band called "The Kerplunks" wrote a song called honeybee.....it's a great little tune....

glass and mixed media painting

this pic above shows 3 versions of something quite similar...the first dish is a fused glass piece...all 100% pure glass, and then beside that is a fused glass tile mounted onto painted wood, and the 3rd in line is mixed media paint on wood panel....the same sentiment runs through them all....Bee True.....i feel this is important, most especially to yourself....

all glass various sizes

.....Bee Gentle....again, most especially with your self....and of course....bee cool and bee wild!!!!!!! yay!!

Groovy Glass Show and Sassy Chickens

Here are some pix of my glass from the Vancouver Island Glass Show, which just happened in Nanaimo on April 23rd....

 so, the 1st 2 pix are from the show...and it was a good show, very well attended...many talented glass artists, and quite a diverse array of glass art!! i think the show has mucho potential to grow and evolve into something quite cool.....the last pic is an image of a brand new bowl!! with long legged sassy chickens....i saw sooooo many chickens in bali, and i loved seeing them running all over.....truly Free Run chicks, which is kind of how i want to operate in the world, especially in my creative practice.....and that is the only kind of eggs i wanna eat!!!....even saw a chicken running through an art museum....really, ya gotta love that.....also, soon to come, well they are already created, just have to post them so you can see them too....free range chicken mixed media pieces!!!! i am really likin' the whole chicken thing, i have had chickens in my glass before ....aaaaaand  i will have some dogs coming into the scene too!!! bow wow!
