Jenny the Jellyfish

Just had to name this one after daughter Jenny!  One of her favorite stories when she was little was called Jenny Jellyfish.  We bought the book during one of our trips to the Outer Banks.

Story Land (Schellsburg, PA)



During our Christmas vacation, Jenny & I added to the mural wall at the cabin in PA (Jenny painted Humpty Dumpty, helped me pick angles of pictures and locations on the wall).  Characters are from an outing we had one year to Shellsburg, just up the road from the cabin.

"Story Land was a privately-run fairy tale park that closed in the 1980s. The 18-ft. tall Pied Piper statue stood on the edge of US 30, a colorful attention-getter that drew people off of the Lincoln Highway and into the woods, where more Mother Goose statues beckoned. Today, a few of those old statues can be seen behind Piper's Place Country Originals, a crafts and plant store run by the daughter of the original owner. The large white castle entranceway has been torn down. The Pied Piper is kept in good repair, still serving as an effective eyeball-grabber after all of these years. But don't go wandering into the woods to look at Humpty Dumpty, the Old Woman's Shoe, and the Big Whale."

In the bottom right is "The Cow," our favorite soft serve ice cream stop in the summer time!

The Orange Sun
The orange sun calls to me,
An unexplained connection,
Sunrise and light,
Sunset and shadow,
A never ending circle,
Extending beyond life itself.

Tree Swallow by Jenny & Atlanta Carrera

Jenny was teaching me how to do collage art (an art style that she learned from her art teacher, Elizabeth Singletary, during the Cape Fear Academy ACE and Summer Camp programs).  We created this joint piece together on a 16 x 20 canvas.   Jenny did the collage for the Tree Swallow from an outline which I sketched.  She also did the collage of the brown tree branch, part of the sky and sun, and some of the leaves.  I assembled the flowers from petals she cut for me. I then finished the background, the black tree branches, and added the bird's nest.  So proud of our joint art piece and my first collage!
