The weather cooled off considerably last week but it started to warm up enough to get out to the wet studio yesterday. Was it worth falling into the Atlantic in early April in New England to hold onto my bags of seaweed?! My sister Marie was still laughing hysterically when she took this picture!IMG_4499

One of my very first ecoprints was with seaweed but these are a real improvement over my first attempts. You bet I’ll be going back for some more seaweed collecting!

Tghe frist three are on silk noir and the last on charmeuse silk.

These are unwashed but they’re in the washer set to “handwash” as we speak.

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.
