Hot to Cool
Comfort of the Vastness, Acrylic on paper, 22 x 30, 2003
We had a blistering hot weekend up here in the Puget Sound Region. Of course this was the weekend I chose to do a glass fusion class at a local glass shop. Not as hot as glass blowing but when all the kilns got up to speed I assure you it did not make the room any cooler. I have never worked with glass before and I found it refreshing. When the instructor asked us if we had any experience with glass it felt great to be able to say "none!" Zero expectations, know nothing. Just teach me. I plan to blog some of the results from the two day glass later in the week.
The hot weather turned blissfully cool today and I think this Sumi Painting captures the refreshing cool mist spirit of the day
