So...glass or gardening? Kayaking or copper foiling? The temperatures are perfect and the outdoors seduces me. New wild flowers appear and my vegetable garden needs constant nurturing. The chickens are loyal companions as we try to agree on where they can and cannot go. Chicken wire fences are appearing everywhere - prettier than dirt bath pits! Glass crafting often becomes a night time activity as I get into my zone, without any disturbances.
This recently completed custom piece depicts early fall on Lake Bomoseen, our local water playground, with a big view of some of the Taconic Mountains, particularly Bird Mountain. I used glass painting in the water, some of the tree and the sailboat bottom. The tree is fused.
My experience is that when riding on a boat of any kind, with or without a motor, you are swept away to a place in the mind that feels like vacation. That is why we came here!
