This Little Altars installment was difficult and easy at the same time. Difficult because I was uninspired and quite distracted by other things (mostly by our new puppy). Easy because all the thought I put into, it in very small increments over many days, seemed to generate its own inspiration and solutions, so that, in the end, things came together more quickly than I could have hoped for!
Out of nowhere, I got a picture in my head of a funky crown for Kathy, and actually put it on paper. I’m sure if I hadn't, the image would have been gone. It seemed like it would be a good thing to make using the copper that I've been coloring with watercolors. I wanted the two spots we were to fill to have some unity, so something with the same materials seemed to make sense. And I had some scraps that seemed to be mountain shapes, so…….. we have a crown and some mountains floating in the wild blue yonder, with vintage nailheads being the gems on the crown.
P.S. Picture attached of Kamy Strahle at 8 weeks. He’s now 11 weeks! Turning into a sweetie!
