Summer is a busy season

My apologies for the lapse in blog entries... rest assured my own mother has repeatedly reminded me about the lack of new stuff...

This summer has been a busy one. That's not to say that I spent every previous summer doing absolutely nothing, but well, this summer has just been particularly productive from an Arts & Crafts standpoint.

According to the file on my desktop, I have made 51 8X10 paintings so far this summer. So, I have been busy scanning those... Additionally, I made 20 11X14 paintings back in June, which, of course are sitting around waiting to have hangers attached to their backs so they can be photographed... I have gone on a tear with papermaking. It's been a good couple of years since I've done it, but in the past 20 days I have moulded about 20 bowls from pulp I made myself... and now I have to paint them and finish them, and photograph them, and list them.

I'm not sure how to explain my decision to manufacture hair accessories from silk flowers & barrettes. But, I scoured the internet for information on how they should be attached, and there they are: sitting in boxes in the office...

And of course, as always there's the photography...

So, I've been working on some pictures of Queen Anne's Lace, as there seems to be a patch of it growing out in the garden, and I am too lazy to weed it. I'm good with photographing it, weeding it — not so much...









I really like the bokeh in the last image. These will probably all inevitably be for sale in my "sarahknight" shop on etsy.

Hello Sarah, it's wonderful that you're being very productive during summer. Not something I'd be able to do! Hahaha... Well, these are lovely pictures, and thank you for dropping by. :))

Hi Sarah. Good to hear you have been busy. Lovely compositions of the Queen Anne's Lace. FAB.

Haha ~ oh yes ~ the weeding ~ always the down side if you want to have a garden... :) But aren't the beautiful flowers worth it? And besides... a few weeds amongst the flowers never hurt anyone!

Have a lovely week Sarah!

Haha! I'm not too good with weeding it either, and why should you? It's beautiful. It's my mom's favorite wildflower, so I grew up thinking it was beautiful and wanted! You've taken beautiful photos of it too. Good luck with all the work you have yet to do.
