Selected August Experiments

It’s all been about cleaning up inside and outside and reorganizing, but when I get to the eco print mode my focus has been on experimenting for much of August. Changing things up, trying new options. While I have been developing a new system for documenting, for this post I’m on a hiatus, so please don’t ask because I don’t have the time to do it.  Time is still very elusive – here one minute and chunks of it are gone the next. So here are a few shots that I really like for some reason.


As you can see, I’m enthralled with these fascinating sweet potato vines!

Sweet Potato Hearts

Although I still have some remaining tasks I’m working on for the Explorations Exhibit, I expect to be turning over a new leaf, so to speak, for this new month of September. Today I scoured and mordanted a bunch of new smaller silk scarves and about 4.5 yards of some lightweight silk noir.

By the way, it turns out that my work will be in the second exhibit- in April 2019. Here are the dates for both of them. Put this on your calendars now because it promises to be two stunning exhibits you won’t want to miss!

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.
