External forces are upon me.  It’s been pretty chilly working out there this week.  It’s still doable but won’t be soon, so the pressure is on to finish up.  Yesterday I pumped out a lot of steamed fabric that’ll cure for a few days now before I wash and iron it and you get to view it.  These are some of the most recent finishes.

The first group are the wonderful silk that Janice Paine Dawes from Wilde Thistle Gallery tells me is dress weight dupioni.  I love it because it feels so substantial and prints so well.

This is a group of eco-rusted cottons. I’m chomping at the bit to make something with them!  But I’m also still over-printing on some of them.

I’ll leave you with a pic I snapped on a little walk I took when I found that I had arrived for a doctor’s appointment a half hour early that tells the whole story of what’s going on around me!

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.
