New in the studio-Clay-Touch of Spring

I'm in my studio this afternoon and I am basking in the sun that floods through the window.  Yesterday it was 80!  Yes 80!  Today I think it is in the 70's and absolutely delightful.  But where is winter?  Maybe where you live?  And as much as I do delight in a good sunny day there is something about not feeling guilty when I'm in the studio on cold, dreary and wintry days.

I'm busy with new art and new ideas.  Famous for having ideas but not always getting them down I'm trying to correct that practice.  I have a notebook/journal obsession to begin with and have kicked that into a higher gear with one in the car, (or let's make that two), one for my purse, and a countless number in the house.

But today I wanted to share with you a new "girl".  She has friends and I'm working on some birthday cards with all of them to sell soon.  But yesterday I made some hearts out of clay. Another new adventure for me.  Patience is allowing them to dry before proceeding! 
I didn't have the right kind of wire so I improvised and unfortunately the Poly I applied lastly yellowed my piece a bit but it was fun none the less! Not sure why the yellowing. The clay?  The paint base I used?  Or maybe it's not shaken well enough Poly?  Sigh.
