Ornaments







For several years I've painted small pieces of slate which come from the portion of roof demolished when our church went through its most recent renovation. I've pictured six of them here that I turned into ornaments, though in the past I have made pins and wall plaques as well.

My favorite subjects are snowpeople doing various things like fishing, singing, skiing and kayaking. Or it will surprise you--birds. But this year I've added cats. The one in the top picture was my favorite--and it sold this morning to people I know and like and have lots of cats, so it's okay. And those of you who know me, know I am not usually sentimental about my work.

But.....I miss that kitty.

I am a robot who got another chance to say "I can see why you miss that precious kitty". They are all beautiful.

SUCH FUN Elizabeth! I love your creative mind...and your sentimentality. YAY, spell check did not tag sentimentality...it must really be a word! HA. I understand...I have missed a painting or two in my day! Keep up the great work!
