Yesterday’s work produced the desired results!  Last year, at the World Quilt Festival, I purchased some gorgeous, muted natural colored mottled gradated dyed fabric that I loved!  I used every bit of it.  I was after a similar color scheme and I got just what I wanted! I used the pale yellow for the first color and then put it through an Ecru dye bath after various shibori tying and folding processes.

Stay tuned for more shibori and more color baths tomorrow!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
