Sentiments Of A Southern Artist: "In The Studio Sneak Peek Friday"

Yay!  It's Friday and time once again for Jennifer's Sneak Peek LinkUp. 

Okay..so what do these 4 Objects (2 Wooden, 2 Porcelain & Glass) have in common?  Well..they'll eventually be part of a whole when I get finished with them.
This particular piece somehow just spoke to me.  From first sight I loved its detail..like perhaps its creator was trying to mimic chapel windows.  Not quite sure where it once lived..maybe the side portion of an old Victorian Doll House or something.
The Cut Glass Piece to the Right was once a part of an old mirror.  Found it while junkin' one Saturday at a local Flea Market.  The booth owner had four of these beauties and although I didn't have a clue what I'd ever do with them, their shape captivated me and I simply had to bring them home.

Stay tuned..my goal is to put together a mixed media collage using a sturdy wooden-support.  Fall is my favorite time to play in my hubby's woodshop.  Over time he's collected every type wood imaginable and it's like Christmas to me when I try and find something I need.  Way too hot to think straight out there in the summer, so as the weather cools my imagination goes wild.
I've had so much going on this week till I was only able to complete one Soldered Piece.  Some weeks are simply more productive than others.  I'm heading off now to explore the sites of the other artistic visionaries participating this week.  Here's the link if you'd like to follow:  http://studiojru.com/

Have A Blessed And Happy Weekend Everybody!

I love that wooden piece that looks like it came from a victoria dollhouse or maybe a minature church.

Cant wait to see what you do with it :)

I love the Old Toys sign. I would love to do more flea marketing and "junking." I don't know if I have the patience. But, I'm sure on the days that you find the *perfect* thing, it more than makes up for all the times you find nothing.

hello lovely lady! i cannot wait to see the finished piece. what gorgeous pieces all on their own, i can see why you are so drawn to them.

your last soldered candlestick is incredible. the light radiating on the wall behind is breathtaking! i couldn't imagine the light play in the early morning and evenings with this striking piece. i'm so in love with glass and crystals...and you my dear!

hugs to you this friday night. i'm in bed catching up on blogs and sketching. oh yes...i'm working on my dreams!!

I can't wait to see what you create! I love seeing works in progress. I think it is so much more meaningful when you are able to participate in viewing the transformation of art. I finished Mountain Girl and will be posting the final result soon. Thanks for your sweet comments. Jen's Sneak Peek idea is fantastic! I love visiting studios on Friday!

Hello, dear Terri! I have been missing in action from the blog world and I miss so much in a couple of weeks! You are hard at creating beautiful works, as usual. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this latest gathering of pieces!! Hugs to you~ Tanna
PS I'm sorry that one crystal bottles shattered, but you made a beautiful creation with the candlestick... lemonade from lemons... Just like something you would do!
