back to the drawing board

This sort of fell off the wall while I worked on Solstice (now finished but for a sleeve and a label). When I put it back up tonight, it went up slightly differently. Still a work in progress, obviously. And the photo is slightly askew because I held the camera above my head and aimed. Oh, well, you should see the photos I didn't publish. Below is the previous version, which is slightly smaller: I am finding my way back to working larger after several years of working small. It is not easy.


On another note, I treated my feet to a pedicure and bright pink polish yesterday -- something I should do more often. So why don't I? I could really have used a massage and a facial too, but will save that for another day.

Now I have to pay bills and pack supplies for my 5 days with Els van Baarle and batik later this week at Peters Valley. I think I'll pack my supplies first: a much more pleasant activity.

There's a totally different feel of motion in the newer version. Starts at the upper right, swoops down and across the bottom and ends at the faces. The original version is solid and strong, but has a more static feel. I like both; each version conveys a different emotion.

This has nothing to do with the piece (although I love it!), but I couldn't find an email address on your blog...

I saw you on SQ this morning and was fascinated to see you working. I love the way you use found objects, etc. And I especially like the writing idea. I has always thought those were using the computer and/or photocopier and printed on fabric...

I know you mentioned you were coming to my neck-of-the-woods sometime, but will you be teaching?

BTW, where do you get dental syringes?

You inspire us all!

I enjoyed seeing this come together and agree with Cathy the back on the wall version has movement not in the original, it also has more depth to me, a sort of going in and out,

I am glad I'm not the only one who has to point and shoot from odd angles so gets a surprise when she sees the photo,

I also agree with a previous comment (I'm reading several posts in one because I'm away a lot) being a textile artist means you can use all the other processes too,

Rayna, thanks for your help with my printmaking on fabric and I will send an e mail with what I've been up to in a couple of weeks when college is over and I have time, really wish you were one of our tutors,
