A Scarf for my mum

I made a scarf for my mom (who lives in Tucson). She loved it and wore it often while I was there (the evenings did get down into the 40s). I noticed while posting this that she is also wearing one of my fused glass pendants that I gave her.

The gift of The Daily Book of Art

I got a great book for Christmas (from Steve) called The Daily Book of Art by Colin Gilbert and seven other collaborators.

It is a good motivator when you have a mental block or just not inspired to do art. It talks about those who have done great works and where they got their inspiration from. There is an entry for Dia De Los Muertos, stolen art, museum mess ups displaying an artist's work, the history of the fig leaf, notable stolen art stories, and so much more.
