Not that I’ve exactly been lollygagging on the divan eating bonbons watching Oprah–in fact, I hear she’s not even on tv any more. Not that I would have had time to notice however, with a very busy summer! It has led up to a very busy Fall semester, coming right up starting on Monday. I’m looking forward to it, with great classes to take and to teach and lots more art to produce, plus the upcoming International Quilt Festival in Houston to continue preparing for, in November.

Here are three mermaids that I finished up in ceramics this summer. One broke, but she’s lovely anyway and will be displayed with some strategically placed fishnet to cover her cracks. I like them, and will make a couple more soon, including one as a fountain for a friend’s garden.
