Study 65: Art Resolutions-Another spring interpretation

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year.

Did you see the movie “what about Bob?” One of my favorites, especially during life’s dark moments. Bill Murray plays Bob and he’s a myriad of psychoses. He can’t bare to not be joined at the hip to his shrink played by Richard Dreyfus and follows his family to their vacation cottage. When the doctor tells him to go home, he has a full out meltdown. “…I’m not a slacker. I’m doin’ the work.”  –Now that I’ve written it, seems like a very big set up to explain that, though I haven’t been posting lately, I’ve been doing work– not every day, but I’m working.

The insanity at work and my list of recent physical distractions have detoured my daily progress a bit. But one of my studies got me back to stringing beads from old or broken jewelry. This was a necklace made from remnants of three broken ones. Creamy pearls, crystal beads of pale pink and green, lustrous pink beads, and one chiseled crystal of bright pink–all knotted on a pale beige bead strand. Another Spring inspiration and some therapeutic handwork.
