I have to admit once I saw the change in the weather I was a little less excited about gallery sitting this week. I said I would work the gallery so I put on my heels and dress clothes and made the trek over the big pond into the city!
I am so glad I was at the gallery! I was able to give one of my birds a proper send off.
I also spent some time visiting the other galleries, now I am working on a list of things that will be going on in the building for our May ( third thursday) event! So far it is looking like May is going to be awesome!
Below is a link to one of the other galleries that participates in Third Thursdays at Seattle Design Center. https://www.facebook.com/Eastside.Association.of.Fine.Arts
I was planning to do housework today but we had sun! I am sure my husband will understand! The laundry did not get done, and the sink full of dishes still needs to be washed, Instead of taking care of my inside responsibilities I spent the day weeding and moving plants around in our yard.
At noon I had an old friend stop by to pick up a piece of art she custom ordered. I love having my creations move off to new homes! This ammo container light will now be out at Tapps Island lighting up the area outside the back porch and welcoming the visitors who stop by the dock to visit the Kumar family.
The evening concluded with a call from the Gallery Context owner to let me know one of the guests from our last Third Thursdays show at the Seattle Design Center, wants to take Brianne to go live in her mother’s garden. She will be stopping by Gallery [Context] tomorrow to pick up Brianne!
Brianne is a petite little bird. She is an amazing production specialist but lacks self confidence. While out in the garden she day dreams of growing up and flying with the eagles. Brianne has a big heart and she spends every free moment collecting worms so that she has gifts to share with her friends when they fly over to visit.
Brianne is going to love her new garden home! Having someone to love and to love her in return will nourish and help her self esteem!
I did think of attaching a photo of the pile of laundry and the sink of dishes that still needs tending too … nah, that might be my next art project!
Photo to left is of Brianna and her new foster Mommy!

Hmm this must be my brother?

I currently have completed six new sculptures , each is a one of a kind piece.
The Body: The metal casings were once used to store the shells for howitzer rounds. The backbone of the American military was the M2A1 105mm howitzer, which could fire shells to over 12,000 yards away, at a sustained rate of 2 to 4 rounds per minute. It was used alongside the M114 155mm howitzer, which had a range of 16,000 yards and a rate of fire of 2 rounds per minute. They were both employed during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam war. Today, both are retired from the US Military but are still used in other countries.
The tops were old farm plow discs that had been covered in rust and the bases are a combination of farm equipment and old car parts.
