The summer’s been sizzling out in my summer studio but the fan keeps me from overheating.  Some of the colors are

pretty hot, though! Here’s some of what’s been happening out there!

Gold immersion Dyed

This is mostly cotton, some raw silk, with  PRO MX FIBER REACTIVE DYE (aka: Procion Dye) and all low water immersion method.

Some is a loose shibori but most are just bunched up and mottled.

Orange Immersion Dyed

I’ve been following along with Ann Johnson’s Color By Accident DVD  which I purchased from ProChem

and I’m finding it to be a very useful addition to my library.  I also have the book, which I keep with me to refer to as I work.

 What I really like about her is that she’s really smart about what she does but not at all dogmatic.

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. Beautiful colors Janis. Which is the raw silk? The piece I shared in the crit group was some of the raw silk from my supplier. I loved how it took dye. Great job!
