I don't really know where that came from but I like it... What it means to me is that... The more that I try to get things done the more that I fit into my every day ! ....and it is awesome when all of a sudden new ideas come in and it just feels right... My new hobby is Art wings studio... We rented five small offices across the hall from my studio, and ots getting painted and spiffyfied into a place to film, and hold classes !! So exciting!!
You can check it out at http://ArtWingsStudio.com Dawn Ruminski is an amazing artist that is co partnering this new step with me!! Wait till you see how talented she is!! Wow!
Well it as just asking for it!! Let me explain...My studio is in Waukesha Wi... Home of Les Paul ( the inventor of the electric guitar..) the city is an art gem with Many galleries, and huge 7 ft Gibson guitars decorating the street corners !
So it was only a matter of time before I had to
make my contribution!! And yes, it's a real guitar !
I shellacked and sealed it, and this is the 3rd summer.
It has been outside!! AND it's a fountain!! How
cool is that?? My sweet hubby is the brains
behind this art price ... I just had to make it
bright and fun!!
It's in display in the "art Garden" very apropos !
