Hi there! Yesterday I visited with Micah and Kelly, those two sweet girls at Second Saturday Studio. We had an impromptu meeting at Kelly's house. Amongst the items we discussed was this blog. It is very difficult for Micah or Kelly to find the time to post often, and since I maintain a blog of my own....I offered to post something about the Studio every Thursday night. Being Kelly's mother, and in the Studio often, I can take photos and let you all 'in' on what I find interesting there. Micah and/or Kelly will still contribute their own posts whenever they feel the need, but Thursdays are mine!
Yesterday, I spent a bit of time in the Studio taking photos and trying to get an idea for my first journal entry. It was a beautiful day here, and October is my favorite month, so I decided to photograph some of the artwork depicting Autumn...either in the subject matter, or in coloration. So here is what I found beautiful yesterday:
1. An abstract, in lovely fall colors, created by Kelly Vanhook, "Mad Chaos." Painted in acrylics. I included a closeup as I wanted you to notice all the circular design there.
2. A whimsical little jewel, created by Micah Holden, "Happy Fall Y'All" a 6" x 6" square in watercolor and beeswax. It's a very tactile piece given the layer of beeswax over top...soft and pleasing to the touch...it even smells good!
3. A beautiful autumn scene, in acrylics, painted by my sister-in-law, Sandra Kraft, which she named "Fall Trees." She has a couple of other paintings in the studio that could also be considered as "autumn inspired."
4. I just had to show you this print by Audra Jones, in watercolor.....what a cute Pumpkin! I didn't see the name of it anywhere, but now that I've said "What a Cute Pumpkin!" well, maybe that would do as it's name. What do you think, Audra?
These are just some of the terrific pieces in the Studio now. You might want to consider dropping by to check them out. Normally, we are open every 2nd Saturday of the month, but from now thru December 18th we will be open EVERY Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This Saturday, I will be there, quilting my heart out...so stop by and say hello!
And, next week, expect another entry in the Thursday Journal! Til then, take care, Pat Eaton
