Internet reloaded and some new work in progress

Iris

I can't tell you how happy I am to be reconnected to the internet and now we are sooo hi tech! I am coming to you via satellite!!!! And the connection is much faster than we had before! Now, if the satellite antenne will only withstand the storms to come - that is our biggest worry at the moment. We shall see.

Flea market finds
I took a short trip to the flea market this morning and scored some more great brass buttons and a glass eye, such as taxidermists use. Aren't they neat?


This is a new mixed media painting I am working on. It has been calling me and I am just a bit out of the zone with my jewellery. Maybe because the painting wants out. We'll see where this piece wants to go.

I love your mixed media painting. The colors are absolutely beautiful. I have been so interested in collages and painting lately myself I don't now why. Your Iris is beautiful also.

Wonderful work Renate. And once again I completely in love with your flea market finds. I have a couple of human prosthetic eyes around somewhere. Don't worry they were never used. Just part of the collection of an ophthamologist freinds.

Renate, the painting is wonderful! I love to see the other side of you, and it reassures me I am not the only one thinking of many things at once! What a treasure you've been finding at the flea market!! And the beauty of the Iris is self explanatory, and your photo makes me want to touch it!! Wish I could!!!

What a great post !! My iris are blooming too. last year ther where just 3 or 4 this year there are about 15 blossoms in peach in white. I hear if you plant colors together through the years they will mix with each other and form new colors.
