I love my time in the wilderness. It inspires me and feeds my soul. It keeps me going through the long Montana winters when I am stuck indoors and the mountain roads are closed due to snow.
Still, for all that inspiration - I find it difficult to transition.
I am back , but it's hard to focus on creative processes. I am home, my studio is waiting, but I don't quite know what to do with myself.
This is a good time to tidy up, and in that process - finish up those projects that are laying around cluttering up my workspace.
Last winter, I worked with Growth Thru Art, a creative workshop for developmentally disabled adults. We painted fabric, which I was then charged with converting into something marketable for their annual fundraiser.
Thankfully, the members of WAV pitched in to help with that, and I have been collecting some really wonderful items for the fundraiser.
I started these birds at the suggestion of Patricia, who left a comment and a link after reading about all the fabric on my blog in this entry. I was not thrilled with them, and was not liking the tedious task of stuffing them.
However, this seemed like something I would be able to do with my broken arm.
They will be arranged on branches to create a mobile.
