at the museum

After a long period of creative inactivity, today was play day. Studio Six - the seven of us who depend on one another for support, advice, critique, and general group therapy - -- met today at the museum. We are lucky enough to have a studio to use one Monday a month and we feel so lucky to be able to work 'en groupe.' One of our number was missing, but we'll see her in two weeks: the first time we will all have been together in eons. As usual, everybody was working independently. Here is Diane Savona, making felt, after which she switched to doing wax resist on cotton. I didn't get pictures of Judy Langille screenprinting and discharging, or of Randy Keenan who was busy making Thermofax screens and doing deconstructed printing. Next time. But here is Rachel Cochran concentrating on some multi-layered process that will undoubtedly yield an exciting piece of orange fabric.

Here's Joanie San Chirico, looking happy to be here and pleased as punch with the results of her discharge experiments.

Me? I was experimenting with something new and am very pleased with the results.

Blogger won't let me upload any more pictures - sigh. Guess I've reached my limit for the day. Will try to be more diligent about posting, but honestly, you would die of boredom if I REALLY told you what was going on. So -- unless I decide to make stuff up, I'll be back when I'm back.
