gatherings ...


--------------------------------photos and art by Elaine A. Russell

So -- I have a show coming up in a couple weeks, and a potential show coming in April. This is exciting. I have a whole new bunch of things I am working on ... and the process is good. I always feel better when I am working on a project.

I am one of those people who .. if I am not working on a project... within a couple days I get really really bitchy, and then I get sick. I physically have to be making something.. or my body will rebel. Weird huh. But good in a way. It keeps me doing things...

Here is a photo of a project I finished not too long ago....It is a recycled old cigar box that has now been made into a shrine. Complete with beaded dangles at the bottom (sort of a signature of mine).
