We're under a rainfall warning here today in the Creston Valley, and my old hometown of Canmore, AB (and still home to my daughter, Rochelle) is being flooded out by Cougar Creek gone wild. Calgary has now 100,000+ evacuees, with more to come if the rain continues.
It's an amazing thing to see the havoc that can be wreaked by nature, and when this type of an event happens, I'm always happy to know that most of us can be safely tucked away doing something safe and enjoyable while we wait for Mother Nature to step back down from her passionate rants.
Although my studio is torn apart from stem to stern today in preparation for this weekend's workshop at the Creston College (you'd be hard pressed to imagine how much prep work is involved in moving large parts of one's studio for a couple of days!), I did manage to complete a couple of pieces over the last while (and start several more).
|T for texture|
This piece is the start of a new altered book, a visual Gratitude Journal. Only 25 more letters to go.
|F for flowers|
|A Peacock Called Alice 8" x 8" x 2"|
As we wait for news of the end of the rainfall in Alberta and start of the reconstruction process, I'm wishing you a safe, warm and dry weekend ahead, and if you've got some room in your heart to send out prayers to those who are affected, please do so.
