Art Walk was a blast last Friday night. I not only got my first showing of my baskets at the High Tide Gallery, but I also got to rub elbows with a lot of the local's from years gone by and of course the Artist's as well. I really love the little gallery and the fact that Aimee, the owner, showcases only local artists. There was lots of good music, comradery, food and fun for all. I even saw some people I had not seen in many years.
I didn't sell anything, but I didn't really expect to the first go round. Next month I will be more prepared as I want to make some larger, more showy pieces and now have the time to do it. Here is a picture of my small display.
I also completed a slightly larger than usual basket this week. I absolutely love, love, love the new wood centers. All of this time I have been calling this Cedar wood, but it turnsout that it is Juniper. I do think though that Juniper is a sister or close cousin to the Cedar. The threads were chosen by my friend KraftyMax and I absolutely adore them with the Cedar. Here are a few pictures of the almost completed basket.
These colors make me think of my friend Dana from Georgia...guess I need to make another!
