The Whole Thing – Small Landscape Project, 2016

Well, the whole thing is over – winter, and the Small Landscape Project. Although it’s not over – like a memory, you can revisit it on the Giveaway Page, and if you see something you like, even if it’s April, or May, or October – just ask. It is yours.

The project got me through the winter in such a nice way. I so enjoy being able to give something back to the world that is supporting me and my art in so many ways. I was touched and humbled by all the nice comments and by how many people seemed to follow the whole progress of the project, day after day. I had the pleasure of meeting new people through my art and in reconnecting with others. People took art pieces for themselves, for others; they let me pick for them, they picked pieces they said they just had to have. All of this really has made me feel cared for and supported. My art is a path to a certain kind of life, for me – it’s not all about the pieces I make but also the process of making them. So, thank you, everyone.

Here is the entire array of works in the Small Landscape Project. If you see one you like and it’s still available (check the Giveaway Page)  – well, you know what to do! Ask for it!

 

 

Small Landscape Day 92

Claudia McGill says: When you’ve come to the end of the list, you can put a line under it, and start a new one, if you like. As long as you have another item, another day, another idea, another thing you want to do, you’ve got a list to look forward to. In fact, why bother with the line, when you know – you’ll just keep going?

Happy Spring.

Small Landscape Day 91

Claudia McGill says: I’ve always liked it when a storm is sweeping in and I can see the curtain of rain coming toward me. And I also like the way the drops of rain are tentative at first – tap, tap – and then a little more assertive – tap tap tap – and then it’s TAPTAPTAPTAP. Just so exciting!

Small Landscape Day 90

Claudia McGill says: There’s that moment when a little bit of blue sky peeks through the clouds. Or a line of light comes through a crack in the curtains. Or the smell of the cake baking in the oven begins to make its way out of the kitchen and into the rest of the house. That moment.

Small Landscape Day 89

Claudia McGill says: I don’t see what’s so bad about turning up at a party or at work wearing the same outfit as someone else. I must add that  it’s never happened to me, so maybe if it did, I’d feel differently. Not long ago, I did notice a woman at the gym wearing the same model of sneakers as I was, and it didn’t matter to me. In fact, I had to admit, seeing them from a distance like that, I felt even better about my choice. They looked good on her, so why not on me?

Small Landscape Day 86

Claudia McGill says: If you see me sitting at a table in a restaurant eating lunch by myself, don’t feel sorry for me. Especially if you see me gazing off into the distance or otherwise looking a little unfocused. I’m totally occupied and happy. But thank you for caring.

Small Landscape Day 85

Claudia McGill says: There is that terrifying moment when you’ve knocked on the door, it’s answered by the party’s host, who’s telling you to come on in! and you look through the door and see a whole big crowd of people having a great time, making a lot of noise, music playing, some of them people you know, some you don’t, and you just want to go home. At least I do.

Small Landscape Day 84

Claudia McGill: The first car I ever bought myself was a small brown car with a manual transmission. It tried hard but it didn’t have a lot of power to work with. I remember driving it to Boston and in one section of the trip, going through some hills, I had to get my speed up on the downhills to compensate for how the little car struggled up the ascents. Well, we made it, and I got 55 miles to the gallon, too. I still think of that car every time I go on a drive that includes steep roads. It had a lot of pluck.
