What are you at now?

….. or I’ve just been hooking. As far as I know there are three kinds of hookers. There’s the high falutin’ kind who work alone in their tasteful high end condos. They tend to be perfectionists. Then there’s the bordello types who work as a group; this crowd is a real mix of talent. Then […]

What Am I At Now?

….or Still Making Stuff. I’m trying to get a few things finished before the grand migration. First up is a basswood relief carving which will adorn the back of my kitchen sideboard. (I think the sideboard originally had a mirror but was replaced with a piece of plywood with a gold swan decal.) The inspiration […]

What are Ya At Now* 3

…..or Still Makin’ Stuff Last year I posted pictures of two stained glass panels I did. They were of two corners of my Grandmother’s kitchen; a place very near and dear to my heart (oh dear, that’s so cliché); a place where I never felt anything but loved. This winter I completed the other two […]

What Are Ya At Now* 2

……or W’as Goin’ On Now? #2 To which I reply “Same ole t’ing, maid, same ole t’ing. Makin’ stuff and den eatin’ some of it. Eatin’ a lot of it, to be shore.” Like these Coconut Milk Sweet buns I made yesterday in my thrift store breadmaker using my thrift store breadmaker cookbook.  Big buns. […]

New Work

…or Painter Barbie Presents the latest J. Parsons canvas. I say canvas but it is actually paper and conté crayon (a type of compressed chalk in a small squared stick). It started out as a rough sketch in preparation for an acrylic but once I got going with that pleather jacket I couldn’t stop. The […]

Today’s Costume: Artist

…..or The things I have Managed to Finish This Summer   This past spring my brother gave me some beach glass and pottery shards he’d picked up at Burnt Harbour, Long Island. No not that Long Island, the one where my parents grew up, in Newfoundland. For fun, I studied each fragment and tried to imagine the […]

New Glass

…or Longing for the Peace of Granny’s Kitchen.   We didn’t spend a ton of time at my Grandmother’s house when she was still there because it required a boat and cooperative weather, but what time we did spend there is remembered as the best days of my life. That’s a big statement, I know. […]

New Glass

…..or Jams and Jellies Forever. I haven’t been totally idle. I got myself in a good stock of glass last year and it inspired some new work for my small kitchen windows in Milton.           © Judy Parsons 2017 email comments to Sign up on the upper right hand side […]

Art Deco East.

….East Meets West Art Deco Style. On our drive South I had one full day in the DC area so there was little time to visit the large galleries. Browsing online, I found a smaller exhibit that caught my eye: Deco Japan. It was at Hillwood mansion, which also looked interesting, so we drove out […]

The Berry Pickers

…….or New Work by JG Parsons. I needed a birthday gift for my Mother. What do you give an octogenarian who just downsized? Some good memories, I hope.       The painting is called “I Vow to Pick Them All”. Mom said she liked it. I was relieved. © Judy Parsons 2016 Click on any picture […]
