It's good to have a minute to blog. Things have been crazy here. I took a part time job at an environmental education center which I love, love, love, but it does take large chunks of time out of my day. I took this photo Friday at a site where we give a talk on mine pollution.
After we explain what is happening inside the abandon coal mine (water causing chemical reactions with rocks inside the mine) we have kids test the water at four different sites. The mine water is directed through a wetland and it actually does a phenomenal job of cleaning the water.
The photo above is of a large hole filled with water near the mine.
(no iron or sulfuric acid in this water)
I've been plugging along on Pixie dresses but my heart is not in it.
Today's dress...needs some razzle dazzle.
A few months ago I was asked to take part in a gardening event. I'm to demonstrate art and sell...something. My idea was Pixie dresses. I need to get myself in the groove, not feeling magical these days. I think I might be in shock, winter really is over, my mind can't believe it!
When I can't get the creative juices flowing I hop on a chair and paint the space above the French doors in my studio. Right now it's just a roughed in painting. I added the mouse today. I miss the mice. Pixie dresses might be put on hold, playing with mice seems more appealing!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend wherever you are. Stop back soon!
