I’m working my way up to the goal of 15 images for the challenge of “Seeing Differently” over on Robyn’s Captivate Me blog. I better get a move on to catch up!

My outdoor studio is one of those portable garages made of the same material as a plastic tarp so it’s somewhat translucent when the sun is right on it. Falling leaves and pine needles have settled around the edges of the roof and sometimes you can actually see them through the roof if you look up.

Still in my studio, I focused my attention on the shelves where I keep some supplies. Sumac berries are for dyeing my fabric.

 

I’m always on the lookout for rusty things, or metal that I can rust to imprint the texture and design on fabric. The can still needs to be rusted but the perforated sheet of metal is well rusted.

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.
