It's The Little Things

On any given day you will find me with something in my hand: a paintbrush, a hammer, a sculpting tool. Lately, since I have several weeks off from my job, I have been working non-stop on my ceramics, getting ready for upcoming fall shows. It has been a fast-paced week, and when I look at the pieces in progress I am pleased with my progress thus far.

Today, I took a breather and stood in the back doorway. I watched as a Jay bird eyeballed the bowl of cat food I had left near the entry. As it keenly watched my every move I stepped back out of view so it could swoop down and grab a bite. This little bird inspired this sculptural wall wreath. So remember to take a breath, look around and find inspiration in the little things every day.
