This piece is 10"x10", foam core, acrylic, joint compound, cardboard and cheesecloth. I like this piece and feel it speaks to me of the ancient ritual baths. click to enlarge! I have two others that are slow going and I may need to put them aside. I am getting a little crazy and feel like I'm walking into walls...so it might be time to begin with a fresh vision and return to them at a later time.
I ordered a new sewing machine and I'm anxiously waiting for it's arrival. I bought it on Amazon so we shall see. My old machine gave me fits with the bobbin, broken threads, tension problems...this new one has automatic features so it should be a dream. In my flickr photostream you might notice the sewing fabrics together in some of my circles and squares. Love the layer thing!This time I hope to add photograph transfers onto fabric. Also bought a bleach pen? Could be fun!
Well all that sunny beach weather is gone for now...back to overcast, rain and cold. Actually, I like the mist and fog and some rain.
I met Annie way back in the 90's along with five other women. We were in a Julia Cameron study group..."Vein of Gold". Annie and I became instant friends and she introduced me to her wonderful daughter Patrice of Makingpeace. Patrice and I had a couple of shows at a local gallery but that's another story. I also met Annie's sister Pat and now Pat has begun her blog called LaLa in LA When you have the time, please drop by for a visit. I believe she will be previewing her purse making. ..enjoy!
