Feast: Art for Rosh Ha Shona

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

My family has been celebrating Rosh Ha Shona, the Jewish New Year. Interestingly, the Jewish Calendar changes it’s year count not on the first month of the month cycle but in the seventh month of the cycle. Indeed the Hebraic calendar is fascninatingly complex, taking into account three different astronomical cycles as well as religious […]

Fall Fashion Colors – 2006

Friday, August 18th, 2006

I’ve added a second article to my Articles and Monographs page on my website. Although we are still in the midst of Summer, Autumn is just around the curve. Now is just the right time to start thinking and daydreaming about the colors that will enliven the final quarter of 2006. The article, Fall Fashion […]

Maryland to Connecticut

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

There are no easy ways to move. Well, ok, I suppose in a fantasy one might throw out everything and start completely new but, really, not practical. Not to mention leaving behind all the things in which we have invested much emotion. So I didn’t throw out much although I did give a lot of […]

Springing out new readings

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

I am so lucky to live in a place that has spring (Maryland has a wonderful vernal season). Here it is, the twelfth of March and already we have had sweater weather.

Goals Feb 2006

Monday, February 20th, 2006

Lately I have been thinking about my business and artistic goals. They are numerous and varied and perhaps somewhat nebulous. The first two conditions are nota problem; the last is occasionally unfortunate. The most nebulous of goals, that is, the goal of being well-known and respected must lie upon other, less vague goals. To that […]

Birthday Post 2006

Monday, February 6th, 2006

Today, 5 February 2006, is my birthday. So it’s definitely my new year. My Silver Dragon resolutions include making lots of wonderful new bead work, painting, getting out there and strutting my stuff! One new addition I am planning on implementing shortly is a guest book. To start it will be a simple web page […]

New Work Jan 2006

Monday, January 30th, 2006

The last few months have seen the creation of several new works including Goddess of the Autumn. This necklace is too big for my scanner! So a friend of mine took a snapshot of it for me. I fiddled with the background and added a dramatic shadow but it still needs to be seen to […]

New Year 2006

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

What a busy time it has been! I can’t believe it’s already the middle of the first month! And I have not posted anything since 22 November! My shows were fun and kept me busy. For the holiday break, I went up to Connecticut to visit family. Now I’m back and I’m working hard to […]
