My new piece is entitled Drought as it is what has been on the mind of all Texans this summer. You can see that the colors match my front lawn perfectly!
The piece is kiln formed art glass and will be on display at the Bulverde Area Art Center this fall.

My wish is for some guidance to live a balanced life. How do I balance the day job, the creative part of me and still have a happy, healthy life with my family?
And again, I also really, really wish for rain for Texas!

I'm off to DC again today for the day job. It goes without saying that the events ten years ago have forever changed us. Today will be a huge reminder as I fly into the nation's capital.
Thanks to all of those who stopped by the Bulverde Jubilee in the dust and heat yesterday. It was nice to remember and celebrate our heroes as a community.

Today's Wishcasting Wednesday prompt from Jamie Ridler Studios is: What path do you wish to follow?
I've been thinking about this for a while now. I am ready to start following a more creative path. My current career has given me many experiences that I wouldn't have wanted to miss. However, the whispers that are telling me to stay home more and follow your bliss are getting louder and louder. I have started this year with a plan to increase my skills with glass and have taken some amazing classes. I have begun to get more involved in the creative community where I live. This is the path that I want to follow. I am surrounded by people who are extremely supportive and am completely grateful for them. Creating makes me happy and my wish is to have the opportunity to do more.
I also really, really wish for rain here in Texas!

This is going to be a great week! The heat has finally broken! No more 100+ degree days. This morning was a wonderful crisp 59. The AC is off and the windows are open!
The big kiln is working again thanks to my fantastic electrician. The heat in the garage caused it to poop out! Got that fixed. The new sand blaster is working. The heat caused the gloves to melt! Got that fixed. Sensing a theme here? Got a new blade on the tile saw too. That wasn't a heat issue, but it sure is nicer to use now (it is in the carport).
I even got my knee fixed last week too. The surgery went well and I am up and about.
Pictured is one of the pot melts that took me two months to do (they don't work as well when the kiln won't heat past 1150). Hopefully, there will be more pretty glass pictures in the near future. I'm ready to get back into the studio!
