November Happenings

Cool fall weather is perfect for another Brown Bag Concert sponsored by the Hattiesburg Arts Council, featuring the Spectrum Trio playing cool jazz. It was necessary to sit in a sunny spot!

Oddfellows Gallery invites South Mississippi Art Association artists to display monthly. Here (back wall) are works by Carla Carlson, Hector Boldo, Cara, (right wall) me, Mike Box and two others. I always feel I'm in good company with these talented artists!

 I just picked up some work from the frame shop which I plan to use in an upcoming show.

Sunday Ties, 12" x 26"
Paula Kovarik's fearless stitching class resulted in these two pieces. She shared some previously quilted pieces from a good friend which she invited us to cut up and use. I first created this Storm at Sea block, then sliced it up and reassembled to make The Foolish Man's House.

Triangle Extension, 16" x 16"
A friend often shares her jigsaw puzzles with me with the edge pieces in a Ziploc bag. This one had all the borders assembled and taped in sections, giving quite a head start. This 1,000 piece scene will still take me a while.
