altered fig

Delicious figs this year and a lot of them.

I decided to play around taking a break from painting....

Painted furniture

I've been painting the hutch in the kitchen. This has been unfinished since I bought it many moons ago. This place is filled with raw wood and now it's all ready to be transformed!
I paint a little here and there. I like functional art.
I painted six drawers and changed the knobs on three of them (top, not shown). I took out the wood burner and wrote on the drawers. They are painted with Lumiere. I started to use it on the doors on the bottom, but didn't like the way it was turning out.
I'm not sure how wild I am going to get with this yet... but it is far from done.

Web of Life

the past few days I have been reading messages in everything. What is life showing me? I'm trying to be open and aware and look at everything around me as if it's all speaking to me. Interestingly, sometimes there is a "glyph", the energy of a situation let's say is repeating itself.
I was a bit melancholy today missing Jake and thinking of Rauchen and how he would fly to the window if a pigeon got close to the window.
In the mail was a thank you letter from the New York city veterinarian hospital who did NOT help my son by the way...."it was nice meeting you and Rauchen"... what a joke. But oddly enough, John came home to say that the woman who used to work for him has a daughter who asked if John had a son Jake and it was her daughter that fixed Rauchen's ear. And did a great job by the way.
So anyway,here i am getting into my car and see this humongous web. I ran back in to get my camera. That was one spider who was able to get a great deal accomplished.... unlike me.

Filling myself up

this is something I did in the cabin one night. I wanted to fill myself up with all the beauty that was surrounding me. I love being in the mountains. I love sitting by the Esopus and just being. Absorbing the all the energy from the trees, the water, the rocks...
