More Crows

Sorting t hrough some older monoprinted crows to see which one is calling me enough to stitch it up this week!

This Crow was mono printed onto silk dupioni (from India) that was originally dyed with indigo, as you can see in a high ozone enviroment the indigo faded and horribly so!

This one may be the one that gets stitched first.  I have a solo show coming up in April of which I need 20-24 pieces in the 8x10 size range in order to fill the space.  I'm thinking of a continuation of my Canyonland series (includes the hoodoos), and/or Prairie Remnant Series, and/or some new crow pieces.

I've stitched several black crows over the years, now I want to stitch a white crow.


It's calling my name, it wants to be stitched!

Pansies and Posies

To get the dimensional look I crumpled the paper blossoms before applying shiva paintstik highlights.  Eventually these will become part of a new series of mixed media postcards.

Studio Delimma

Delimma:  How to keep Oliver out of my sewing area when I'm not using that space???  The chair with the pile of stuff is the current gate for my sewing studio, it's butted up against my spinning wheel which is butted up against a Singer sewing machine cabinet.  This all to keep a curious puppy safe.  A baby gate won't work in this situation since there is nothing to really attach it too. so am looking for creative ideas.
