Frazzled in Boston. Giving is good.
With all that is happening in Boston, I haven't gotten off my blog this week. I 've made quilt blocks for Project Hope, started a baby quilt, several journal quilts and Hannah's soft birthday card. I am going to take a break to post something easy.
Over the Passover/Easter week I was cooking challenged. When I heard neighbor Jeff bragging on his son's matzo ball soup, I said I would give fifteen-year-old Lloyd the 16" x 20" painting I had made of him as a youngster if he would provide my guests with his "award-winning" soup. The next day, young Lloyd appeared with his culinary art for 8 people in a big silver kettle and we loved it. Particular Hannah said it was the best she ever had. I am not yet pleased with the journal quilt I created on the subject, but here is the "unfinished" painting that Lloyd took home.There is a baseball carved in the paint in the clouds above his head. Lloyd had a cello before he was five, or four. He and his dad LOVE baseball. His mother, an accomplished cellist, is on his shoulder in the painting.
I ran across another painting in iPhoto, canvas stretched on cut-out wood, light bulbs and rullers attached, which I made and gave to the dean of my art school when she wrote a recommendation for me. Seeing this snapshot of the painting made me want to get back to fun of crafting in painting.The title is "Those Who Do What is True, Come to the Light." Click to enlarge the photos.
