Mindful Monday and my steely resolve

I am not going to be distracted from the task at hand by writing a long post.  Lucky for you lot!  But here is the second Monday vignette of composed mindfDSCN3198ulness (for want of a more succinct description) for the year.  They won’t all DSCN3195feature my ladies but, like last week’s, this one does.  She stands in front of a beautiful glass plate by Sheryl Glassmith , one of the TARTS (Textile and Arts Collective) of Rundle Mall,  Adelaide and the scene is completed by two fabulous resin clouds that I love.  Her shield is made from a discarded jug doily I picked up at the tip and she was my first figure in many years.  I wrote about her here. The tip shop has closed (I hope this is a temporary measure) so this scene mindfully acknowledges the contribution of Broken Hill’s tip to past creations.  And I love these blue and coral colours and she seems serene.  And I do think she is listening rather nicely which reminds me of my word this year.

My mindful Mondays also reading the next chapter of Taming the Elephant, but more of that another day.  Now it’s back to the embellished toolbox.DSCN3197
