I haven't' blogged in 10 days...

What's up with that???  Where did the last 10 days go???  I have a show July 9-11 so I've been coming home and going straight up to the studio to work....and I totally blew through 10 days. 

Here are a few pics of things I've been working on...




The beads I picked up from Angi Graham are working out really well with the bronze.  The reds and oranges pop up against the bronze. I wish I had bought more...but I'm also getting ideas about enameling some metal pieces to go with the bronze discs.

Since I'll be in the studio non-stop for the next few weeks I bought a Bose docking station for the iPod.  That's probably one of the best things I've done for myself.  I have a TV in the studio but I get sucked into watching it and don't work.  Playing music seems to complement my creative efforts.  It provides mood and energy without distracting me from creating.

A great CD that I just downloaded is Talking Timbuktu.  Ali Farka Toure, an African blues singer/guitarist from Mali and Ry Cooder play together on this CD.  It is at the top of my favorite list right now.  This one really does set a mood to work in the studio. 

Well...that's all for now.  Stay Cool!!!
