Work in Progress


Some of you may recall that last month I bought an empty burlap sack, which once held coffee beans, at my favorite cafe. The sack hasn't moved from where I draped it when I took the photo of it last month. It questions me every day: So, what am I here for?

Yesterday morning, as I was picking leaves off the lawn, I thought how exceptionally pretty they are. Bingo! So, I collected a few and brought them indoors to dry. By afternoon, they were in the office. Ah-ha! Within minutes, I attached a few of them to the canvas. Hmmmm.

I looked down at the floor and saw the box that held stuff I used for a floral arrangement for last year's county fair. Hellllllllloooo! called some blue dried flowers. They went up on the sack.

Then all went quiet.

To be continued.

  1. It’s funny how ideas come to us all of a sudden. This is a great one and it is going to be so pretty when it is finished. You are going to have to keep us posted.

    1. I asked the Husband what kind of paint I could use on the sack. "You have to treat it first," he said. Bummer. Still, color is calling to me.

  2. I need to look at things and look again and again before I notice what is staring in the eye...plus I'm great at procrastinating.

    1. The leaves are changing color as I write. The thing needs a broad blast of color.

  4. Great post! (And this sounds like something I would do: get something, then have a creative block and be unable to move forward. Only later to have inspiration pop into my head out of nowhere.) I can't wait to see how this progresses. :-)

    1. My head is spinning with a lot of possibilities. I wonder if I ought to mount it on a frame first.
