Welcome to another year.... resolutions time again . . .
where do the days go... however, i have made one major resolution for 2008, and that is to make two bottles of hope every day. it seems every time i even turn around another friend is diagnosed with cancer. so i intend to do what i can by making bottles of hope for our local cancer center at Kingston General Hospital. so far the nurses have been so wonderfully receptive that doing this small but significant deed will ease their days as well. kudos to all the nurses who give so much to their jobs and thus to the people who come to them for treatment. BRAVO!
this scope is for my friend maryann. i have known mar since we were 13 years old, so i send this scope to her with all my love for a successful treatment. love you, mar.
i am a kaleidoscope artist and while making bottles of hope i discovered that the same little bottles could be used for the chamber of my smaller scopes. some are made with an oil chamber and some chambers are dry cells. so i started making hope scopes also for near and dear friends diagnosed with cancer.
kaleidoscopes are magic... there are scientific explanations, sure, but looking thru a scope and seeing a never ending series of beautiful images is pure magic. so along with making scopes for a local gallery, see my geisha at Sandra Whitton's Gallery. she hides a scope under her skirt.
i love sculpture and so i have begun to make what i call kaleidosculptures...
i also want to wish to the world a year of peace and no more wars..... you cannot fight to get peace, you must live peacefully at all times, and then we will have peace.....
