Hartman’s watermelon canes

How can it be Monday? I’m still in weekend mode and these polymer clay watermelon canes from Pennsylvania’s Linda Hartman suit my end-of-summer mood perfectly. They remind me of those “personal watermelons” that are so popular.

There’s some great caning going on out there like this from Linda (aka papernclay). I’ll do a little study of the trend this week. But for today I have to put the finishing touches on the renovated studio and take some pictures to share with you.

Singapore’s Garie Sim is usually featured for his polymer clay micro figures. Of course he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a little Olympic tribute. Take a look at his “Snakes in Lion Costume” diorama.

Thanks to Lindly Haunani for the link.

        It’s hard to believe it’s still August here in Maine… It’s been cold and wet for weeks! But I am reassured by Linda’s beeeaaauuutiful canes! Just delightful (and inspirational)!

        Gary is a magician – that’s about all I can say about him.

        So, Cynthia… when are you going to be able to move into that stunning new studio? And, when your husband is done working his own magic, can I borrow him? 😉
