Art Walk Show in St. Pete this Saturday!

Yes, I have a show this coming Saturday April 12th. The first show of the year, exciting!

I have many things to do, print some labels, get a table cloth, pack the pieces... thankfully my sister mili is in town and she will help me yay! It will so much fun, I wish you all can come to see me but I know some of you are far away, wish me good luck.

Red-Bellied Woodpecker Bowl

Here it is, the 4th bowl finally ready :)

This time I left the background without any glaze, just some red wash to give it some color and highlight the texture, perhaps I have to work a bit more on the texture, or perhaps I have to keep looking for a nice color for the background, perhaps I have to apply the glaze with a spray which I am not very fun of. . . too smelly, to  complicated, but perhaps I will try it next time.

I have some plates I am working on right now I think I may try the spray gun with them.

But what do you think of this bowl, does it look better than the bowls with glaze in the background?

Turtupilines/ Vermilion Flycatcher

I was super busy yesterday, I had to baby sit Sophie, my dear friend Katalin's baby girl. Well, toddler to be more precise. At the end of the day, I was pretty tired, I can only imagine the life of a full time mom, and if she happens to work regular office hours, ay, ay, ay! I don't know where they can recharge energy for the next day; because today I sleep a little bit more, and did my stuff and as you can see have time to take some photos, but for the mothers everyday starts again the same way: Moooommmmy!

But overall, it was a nice day! I miss my friend Katalin here, easy to reach, so having her and Sophie over was really, really nice. Thank you for coming liebe Kati!

Anyway, here are the photos, the bowl tentative name is "Alighting Upon a Full Limbed Summer" we will see if we keep it or change it.

I picked up the Bowl#2, it looks good. Tomorrow I take more photos and keep you all posted.
