For nine years my studio was also a gallery, open to the public in downtown Exeter. When I closed that space and built a studio at home, people weren’t sure when or how to see my work. The answer – - -
Just call or email and we can set a time. You can ask any question, see whatever suits your fancy, learn about whatever piques your interest. You can have a private Three Rivers Studio Tour when you are in Tulare County.
Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Sophia and Max who are home schooled by their Mom, the jewelry maker of Plumage.
[Time out - I went to her site to link it to this blog post and I got sidetracked and bought a pair of earrings! I NEEDED them. They are navy abalone teardrop shaped, and you just can't believe how exactly they fit my idea of a perfect pair of earrings. I love navy blue. I love teardrop shaped earrings. I love abalone. L O V E these. If you are lucky, maybe Liza (pronounced "Lee-za") will make a pair for you. Then we can be twins. But remember, I got mine first, so there.]
Where were we?
In my studio!
We were supposed to be learning about art, but there was a scorpion on the floor. After squishing it, I put it in this bag and gave it to Max. He looked at it under the giant magnifying light, which is normally used for drawing fine detail in pencil. Max thought all the grossness that is a scorpion was cool.
Sophia tried out my pencils after we talked about the different hardnesses and blacknesses and the different erasers.
You can see Max’s blue head here as he looks over Sophia’s shoulder.
I’ve never met a home schooled kid that wasn’t terrific. These two were no exception to that rule.
Thank you Liza for bringing Sophia and Max to my studio!
Man oh man, you are gonna love those earrings! Let me know when yours arrive so we can wear them on the same day!
