Thursday was another good day for outdoor work – no sun but no rain either. Here are a few more pieces I completed while the weather was holding!

Batiks
Batiks I started last year and didn’t get back to until now! First I did some Blue and some Yellow. Finally, I gave it an Evergreen for the final dunk.

Although I put a few more shibori pieces through an initial dye bath, they aren’t finished so they’re not shown here.

Last year I dyed a piece of blue fabric with Chinese Red Dye. I took this and put it in an Evergreen dye bath. I Love this color combo.

This one started out with a Chartreuse dye and Alpine Blue applied directly; then another dunk in Evergreen.

I linked up with yet another creative fiber artist on her “Off The Wall Friday” blogpost:  http://ninamariesayre.blogspot.com/

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.

  1. Oh, goodness! They are each more beautiful than the one before. I really love the one with Chinese red dye. You’re brave with your dyes. Are you dying on cotton or silk? I wish you lived next door so I could come play, too!
