Striving Toward Green And Gold

(Ive been speed-working, trying to keep up with more than I should try to do at one time, and just realized that I posted a repeat blog post when I should have posted this one!  Sorry friends!)

This week I’ve focused on getting some greens and golds as my ideas for the eventual piece of textile art are coming into view in my mind’s eye and in some sketches. I’m thinking landscape so I need some more earthy tones, particularly greens and yellows and everything in between…so, the journey continues to take me on some new paths that I’ve never traveled before. Using copper and titanium oxalate as a mordant has held a lot of surprises!




Washed and Completed: A light, seafoam green with shades of gold/copper leaves.

About turtlemoonimpressions

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.
