".....One of four entries by me for
this month's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC) (~the theme for May being
"The Elements: Fire, Water, Earth and Air") is an original acrylic
painting of vellum, mounted permanently onto a 3.5" by 8" reclaimed
wooden board (3/4 " thick).
May's Nibblefest theme, 'The Elements', was quite different than
usual. Being as that there are four classical elements (Fire, Water,
Earth, Air), we were allowed to enter a total of four pieces rather than
the usual limit of three, provided that each pertained to a separate
element. This is my entry for 'Air'.
We don't own a working dryer.
By choice. Years ago, when the heating element of our old, second hand
dryer burned out, we just never bothered to get it fixed, or replaced.
I didn't use it that often anyway, preferring as I always have an
old-fashioned clothesline. Air drying clothes saves money and energy,
besides the fact that you just can't beat that fresh, air-dried smell.
And so we have here a busy Mama and her little helper, on 'Wash Day'
(unfortunately my own 'little helper' isn't nearly this cheerful when it
comes to our clothesline. She wants our dryer back.....!)
