MIMI DEE ARTWEAR AUGUST 2013 NEWSLETTER
Dear friends, visitors and collectors,
In May I broke both my right foot and left ankle forcing me to wear
a cast on each foot thus making access to my office impossible.
This latest will only serve to limit my infrequent outings even more than before.
Imagine all these weeks without access to the internet!
Unable to list, let alone photograph a single item to add to my catalog
here at http://www.mimideeartwear.com.
Worst of all, not a single oil painting
was produced because I prefer to paint standing up, and that just was
The only piece I was able to muster, was a self pitying small pencil drawing titled:
"My Broken Feet". I don't see that as a painting anytime soon.
With at least two months of physical therapy on the horizon, new listings may
be slow to show.
Thank you kindly, Mimi

COLLECTING SIGNED BUTTERFLY METALWORK SCULPTURE JEWELRY
Watching elusive butterfly jewels in our gardens, can
conjure up playful childhood memories of yearning to
possess those garden jewels if only to examine them
closely and try wearing them in one's hair. Speaking
from that youthful girl perspective, the iridescent
wings did indeed look like gems that could make any
little girl squeal with delight and want to own
a jewelry box full.
