I have been busy.


I have been so busy with my day job running a business and working in our gardens at home,  that I have not had much time for painting. No worries. I will get back to it very soon. Meanwhile, I am still making miniature beaded baskets like this variation of the Peyote Basket.



I  have rekindled my enjoyment of beading in recent weeks and have produced a few small beaded baskets.

Materials include #11 glass seed beads, nylon beading thread, and a #10 beading needle.

I feel really blessed to live here by the confluence of the Eel River and the Pacific Ocean.
