So Fine

So Fine, 5 x 5" ©2011 Kim Hambic

This piece represents blue skies and a general feeling of well-being.

Right now the skies are gray and threatening to spit snow.  I am experiencing a lovely head cold.  Perhaps if I stare at this piece long enough, I will feel much better.

Yes, to me this piece is bright and happy.  To others, it is probably too dark and grim.  What's your take?

Always a number

Are you one of the 99% or the 1%?

Always a Number, 6 x 6" ©2011 Kim Hambric

Were you first in your class?  How many marshmallows do you like in your hot chocolate?  How much do you weigh?  What time is your flight?

Some numbers we must embrace.  Some numbers we could do without.

Lately, I've been watching my daughter do her math homework.  I'm hoping that she will continue to feel the joy in mastering numbers.  I lost that joy in the 8th grade and never got it back.  It looks like I'm going to get the chance to learn everything again.  Maybe once again I will find the joy in what numbers do, and not just what they look like.

Right as Rain

Right as Rain, 6 x 6", ©2011 Kim Hambric

Today, my newest piece matches the weather.  Rainy and bright at the same time.  The best kind of rain to have in my opinion.

This piece is now in my Etsy shop.

Used to be Farmland

Used to be Farmland, 6 x 6" ©2011 Kim Hambric

Year after year, the farmland is eaten up by bulldozers and replaced with subdivisions and shopping malls.  Often, the old farmhouses languish next to new homes and slowly give way to time and weather.

This piece can be found in my Etsy shop.

Throwing My Free Shipping Hat into the Ring

Anywhere but North, 6 x 6" ©2011 Kim Hambric

In my efforts to clothe myself and my family this fall, I have had to resort to catalog shopping.  If I like something from a company that offers free shipping and something from a company that will take 10 additional dollars to mail the item, I'm going to buy from the company that offers free shipping.

Free shipping makes me happy.  It just feels good.

So now, until the end of the year, I'm offering free shipping in my Etsy shop. Newly included in my shop is the piece above, Anywhere but North, a reflection of how I feel this time of year. I could be persuaded to take a little trip down South, though.
