Iris Morning: Project Day

Oooh! And what a gorgeous day it is too! Midsummer days at their best... clear and sunny and full of ... full of ... everything for us. I have been stunned by the beauty of our iris this last week. This precise blue-purple against the early green of summer keeps catching my breath. And we have so many, many of them. Yay. O. Yay

So: today's project: I have seen foam insulation board carved and painted into shapes and plaques, and I have tried to mimic the look but so far have managed to make a miserable mess of airborne blue bits which take me ages to clean up. So we will make a pilgrimage to the hardware store and see what ideas that they might have. I have been pondering the question of "What are my symbols?", and got to thinking that this medium might be a good one to work on some answers.

Breakfast done we will go draw some iris and then query the gentle foam board proprietor folk and then come home to make a mess, uh, I mean art.

I worked this morning on my beaded ribbon for the book. This is the angels one. I had an idea yesterday for the book. Less words, more art. I think that that might work.
