Morning

 

April 24 Update: Morning is accepted to Telling America’s Stories: Celebrating 100 Years of National Park Service at The Brush Art Gallery & Studios in Lowell, MA. The exhibit runs May 7 – June 10, 2016.

I am so pleased to have my work included in another National Parks exhibit! When I began to work on various National Parks, I had no idea these kinds of opportunities would become available and I’m grateful for each one of them.

This piece was inspired by a South Rim walk out to Hermit’s Rest.  Continue reading “Grand Canyons and Plateaus”

Silk and Angelina Fiber

The straight fused piecing I talked about last time is fused and quilted, but not quite finished. After buying silk organza, silk gauze, and silk crepeline, I chose not to use any of them because they took the tones down too far.  I thought the crepeline would work because it is the most transparent (also very expensive!), but it has a distracting sheen that was too much for an overlay on the whole piece. All this silk and what to do with it? Continue reading “Silk and Angelina Fiber”
