A Show Called Recording Nature

Diane and I have a show on at the moment in Bear River
A show called Recording Nature
Deb at The Lucky Rabbit Pottery
Kindly donated a beautiful turtle platter,
a huge vase and tiles
proceeds of which will go to 
diane's passion
'Species at Risk'.
Erin and Jon's Sissiboo Cafe is a great place for a show with
long clean walls
and the best Latte's anywhere!

Today is Diane's Birthday
So I thought I would show her work.
These hooked rugs of just some of the species at risk
were designed by her and her daughter.
Again all proceeds go to that cause.

Diane's own work for this show
is all about the Blanding Turtles project.
That top piece maps the area in the turtle study.
The Bottom one represents the
protective coverings they place over any eggs
the moment they are laid.

This piece of Diane's represents the walk
they take searching in the known
places for turtle activity.

If you can enlarge this photo you will see
bits of a turtle skeleton and shell.

 Another of Diane's pieces
It is lichen
and lovely suggestions of woodland behind it.

And Finally Diane's trees.

My work in the show stretched along a 26 foot wall.

I called this piece "Resting" but I think I want to change that to
"Resting Between the Shadows"
"Resting Between Night and Day".

So many thanks for all of you who came and made the opening vibrant.
I met so many interesting and creative people.

Happy Birthday Diane!


  1. What a wonderful way to greet Monday -- looking at the pictures of this show. I wish I could see it in person. Its just FABULOUS!

  2. Happy birthday to Diane, and best wishes for a very successful exhibition!

  3. What a wonderful exhibit of talent! I am going to have to come back and look more closely.

  4. Wish I could be there to see it. Looks fabulous.

  5. Looks like a wonderful show - wish I could see it in person! (btw - for some reason your last three posts disappeared somewhere between my reader and your blog....hmmmmm)

  6. Thank you for sharing this magnificent exhibition. Diane and you are wonderful artists of Nature. Happy Birthday to Diane !

  7. What a treat to have coffee and look at all your beautiful work - what a great show. I hope the cause does well. xx

  8. Wonderful work by you both and a great cause the proceeds are going to.
    Since I first saw your amazing piece that you have featured on the marketing brochure, I have loved it! I think I mentioned in a comment that it reminded me of a scared site.
    Penny, please can we saw more of your stunning work that is on display? Seeing your work on the wall gives a sense of the size of your pieces, as often your photos only show a small area that you may be working on & it is hard to imagine what size you are creating. Also do you sell your work on a public site? Wish I could be at your exhibition to see all the pieces.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, your thoughts are most welcome.
