Summer break has begun but I'm still partly in school mode. Went back yesterday and worked on scheduling for next year. The next big task is cleaning and re-organizing the art room. My collection of recyclables has exploded this year with materials for my "Juicy books."

Every Summer I have big plans for cleaning out, re-organizing, etc. then the heat gets to me or I get overwhelmed by the abundance and before I know it, it's time to go back to work. Some things are different this Summer. I really think I can make some headway.

I've spent the last couple of months out of the studio. I set up some space in the carport to do clay work. I took apart a computer hutch I was going to toss due to water damage and tucked into a corner. I covered it with some outdoor cloth and vinyl and it's a potting/clay work bench.

I have a big batch of clay pieces to glaze. This is my second group of clay pieces for garden sculptures and I hope to have worked out some of the kinks I encountered in the first batch.

Earlier in May, the Chicklet and I finally made our way to the Deer Valley Rock Art Center on the north side of town. It's one of those hidden treasures we'd never been to. We came across a Javalina themed art exhibition, a Native American garden, a petroglyph scavenger hunt and some beautiful vistas. Very inspiring!

I had some photos to share. Finally!!! But Blogger keeps telling me I have a "bad request" and it's time to get moving this morning. I'll wrestle with the pics later. Have a great day!
