We're in the throes...

...of unpacking, and I just had to show you this extraordinary artwork I found in the process:

Accidental artwork - packing tape pulled from box

Just to prove I'm not full of it!
Now, back to the unpacking, and hopefully I can check in next week with a restored studio, 'cause right now it's merely a Palace of Possibility!  More truth photos below:

Check out these snazzy cabinets; John kindly painted them before we moved,
and I'm all over the colour and the possibility of more layers.

Isn't life exciting?!!!!!

Because we're moving...

... and the packing and cleaning and sorting and disposing and opening and closing boxes is really getting out of hand, I find creative time is at a premium.  Until I get into my new studio, I thought you might like to take a look at some projects from the past.

This delightful creature,

was conceived for Art Trot  and you'll find a trail from the previous link through to here and the grand finale.

Another project that took for-flippin'-ever was A Case for Gardening.  It was all that carving out of the book pages that had me cross-eyed and not-quite-sane, but the result is still a favourite.

I'm still loving these shoes (although they're packed now).

Their story is here and here.

Only twelve days to go until we move, and then into a studio again.  I'm chomping at the bit, can you tell?!

Drum roll, please...

...and the winner of 'The New Hood' wonky houses painting is Val van der Poel, of Creston, BC.  This is the first time I've had a local win one of my draws - no mailing required, unless I can't get her out of her gardening mode! Thanks for sharing and playing, Val. 😊

And on the Good News front, spring has arrived here, and we're enjoying the results of John's labour over the past eleven years in the form of a spring bouquet.

Is it any wonder that the blossoms are so beautiful, given the gorgeous blue skies and sunshine that are filling every corner of our world?

Inside the house is perhaps not so gorgeous - the corners and every available space seems to be filling up with boxes.  And here I thought we'd done a good job of purging.

The cupboards are slowly emptying,

the artwork is being packed away,

and the shelves are starting to look bare in some areas.

This all means, of course, that time for creativity is somewhat at a premium.  I'm mostly unleashing it in the form of cookie baking, which is not the best thing for the waistline!

Never mind, the move will be over in three weeks, and it will be back to the literal drawing board.  In the meantime, I'm wishing you a creative blitz so you can feed mine vicariously!
