Interview Blog Game

Melissa from Ohio has this very fun Blog interview GAME and I wanted to join in.......even though I had been looking in on her blog..........(she was my swap partner in the UNDER THE SEA SWAP hosted by Zan ).....I found out some things in her interview that I had wondered about but hadn't asked.....What I do know.....she makes beautiful seahorses...I was so thrilled to be her swap partner! are Melissa's questions to me and my 1 Minute of fame!

My INterview

1. A quick peek at your blog tells me you knit and do mixed media and work with clay. What other arts/crafts do you do and which of them all is your favorite?

My all time favorite thing to do is paint and try to add texture without much collage...... I can't stick with one medium for very long.........that's where the "gypsy"part comes in to play........and I don't stay put for very long either! Think oils will be my next adventure.

2. What is your favorite subject matter? Do you prefer abstracts, realism, fantasy....?

Oh... that is an easy one.......ABSTRACTS!

3. How, if at all, are arts/crafts different in Mexico than in the US?

Not much different at all.......just extra materials to play with.......Milagros and tin are everywhere........recycled anything is in many pieces of Mexican art.

4. How has Mexico influenced your creativity?

It's the easy going lifestyle.... the brilliant colors ....the warm and oh so friendly people! Siesta time is fabulous!

5. Both of your homes are in warm, sunny, ocean climates. If you won a third home anywhere in the world, where would it be?

So interesting you asked this question......we used to live on a sailboat and traveled with our twin daughters down the East coast and the Bahamas for several years before settling in Mexico............we have since sold the boat and now I am thinking..... Texas Hill Country......on a river......complete...with chickens....a and lots of space for all the other family that will be coming into our lives. (we have four grown daughters and two grand munchkins......)

I believe thoughts turn in to things...........I am thinking Hill Country!

  1. I can't say that I am surprised by your answers, though they do confirm I'd LOVE a playdate at YOUR studio. :)

    am I brave enough for this one? not sure, but what the heck ... plus, you've got my email addresss. :)
