Inspired project

Inspired Finale

Jen has posted the final pair of Inspired. Yes, the last duo of our collaboration. That makes two of my projects that are ending, sniff sniff. Since she mentioned one of her favorites pairs, I mention I think this is one of mine {from april 2008} as is this one {from may 2008} and from this year I really like this one. It has been an amazing experience to work with Jen and I remarked to her today that I couldn't believe we began discussing Inspired exactly two years ago! And then we began shortly thereafter. What a nice way to mark time, by making a piece of art with someone and being inspired by them.  Thank you for letting us share all our pairs with you!

Now I am going to go make soup of some sort. Today I made two loaves of pilgrim's bread; I amended the recipe by adding flax meal and wheat gluten. That bread begs for some soup to sop up. And oh, I checked out A Christmas Story from the library. "You'll shoot your eye out!" Ha!

Have a nice evening,

Inspired November

Jen sent me her photo {above} today, which I told her, seems to capture my thoughts lately about the need for QUIET. My response {coming at the end of Nov.} will make the final pair together in Inspired, a project which began last year. I don't have words right now to describe what this really means, {except that it's been amazing} perhaps I will find them.  Yet for now, I bid you good evening, as I'm off to make some simple spaghetti for supper, with homemade rolls.

Bon soir mes amis,


Good morning,

Today I'm sharing Jen's response to my October Inspired piece. I believe this may be one of my favorite pairs, and we've made a lot of pairs! {This project began in February of last year.} Later in the week we'll post her photograph for November, in which I will make a drawing inspired by her piece.

Have a good day,

ps. If you click the image, I think you'll be able to see it in my flickr, & view it larger.

Autumn Color Week | red

Jen posted a closer view of my Inspired piece for October {seen above}.  I am happy with how it turned out. :)

Go see Martha's new U N Uniform Natural line and website, it's a m a z i n g!  I am a little ga-ga over the bag!  Her shop opens Oct. 8.

Feast your eyes on all the Autumn Color from the week over here.

Do you have any weekend plans? I hope to see some art tonight at First Friday in downtown K.C. Hooray for Friday!
