It has rained so hard this week that it was wonderful to wake up to sunshine and chirpy birds this morning. This was the view out my front window.
I keep finding new apps for my phone and the one I used for this little
animated gif is called cinemagram. The cool thing about it, that you may
not be able to ascertain from this, is that you take a short video and
then you can manipulate it so that the background stays still and you
designate a small part of it to animate. That is why you see no wobble
in this video, just the little bird and feeder moving. I am looking forward to playing with it more.
December has arrived. Wasn't it just summer? We went out and did a little Christmas shopping today. Amazing how much money you can spend in a very short time!
Got into the studio for awhile this afternoon and spent most of my time cleaning up the huge mess that has accumulated over the past few weeks. I have set my large quilt aside that I have been working on. It is not what I want. I will get back to it eventually, probably, but it was getting me down. I am still trying to loosen it all up and get a more spontaneous feel in the buildings. A friend reminded me of some of the smaller pieces I have done that have a nice light looseness. It is so hard to translate that into bigger work. But I decided I needed to see how that felt again and made three little pieces today. I am wondering how I can work with these little pieces to put them together into something bigger. I think, maybe, it can be done.
