I got home yesterday on a very swaying ferry. Out in the open water it tends to roll a lot side to side, I could not look at the horizon! My husband is still away fishing etc and having a great time. Take a look at the size of this fish and the smiles on those faces!!
As tradition would hold this time I came to Pt Townsend we found snow. It seems no matter when I come down here there is snow, this time we found it on Hurricane Ridge. Andrea, Jim and I headed up there for a nice 2+ hour hike, there were some gorgeous views up there!
Halloween is always interesting around here. The firehall is right next door to us. They have hotdogs, goodies, a bonfire and fireworks for the locals. The horses and cat are always a bit startled by the events but no one is too upset. We bring Eazy (Roddy's steer wrestling horse) in the barn, he's afraid of fireworks. But the other boys stay outside. The cat was hiding in the laundry cubby this year! I love the fireworks, I could watch them for hours! Here's a picture of the bonfire, it's hard to get the idea of size but it's about a story high when it's burning at it's best.
I have been creating tiny works of art in glass since 2003, in my home studio in Victoria BC Canada. Working mainly in soft glass I love the colors and reactions they provide. I draw a lot of my inspiration from the Canadian wilderness and the lovely gardens in my area. Victoria is known as the “Garden City”. My personal love for animals and wildlife provide me with a constant source for artistic vision. My other passion is horses we own, breed and train! Between the two passions I am always busy! I am happy to do color requests if you have an idea you are dying to see transfer into glass, but can’t promise it’ll be exactly as your mind had it envisioned! Glass sometimes has a mind of it’s own.
I am a member of the ISGB and Pacific Pyros. I am a self representing artist which means all the beads you see are handmade, one by one, by me! They all go directly from the torch to the kiln, making for consistent crack free beads.
