I let go of the November 7th deadline...it is an annual show and there is always next year...too much had to be done for a new piece to be completed. However, behind that decision, I pulled out most of my smaller works that I have left and will loan them to the Iroquois Branch Library to hang for the month of November along with some of my cloth. I have to put sleeves on some, others will go into frames...I also will be in a pop-up show next Friday along with my neighbors at Mellwood. The pop-up show will be in one of the vacant studios just off the courtyard where a live band will be playing so we're aiming for more visibility.
Below is the 1st piece I was attempting to complete before November 7. This one is done with dye paint...I applied wax over the boats yesterday and scrapped both sides with a mixture of jet black, turquoise, and navy. I have another one that is done with fabric paints which will be the main piece. This one I'll complete for practice and preparation for the other one.
the fabric on the right was using up the last of the dye and print paste...it is stamped with crookedly cut potatoes.
and inspite of me cleaning off the surfaces of my desks earlier in the week, this is how they look now, just a few days later...
and thanks to Paradise Videos for filming and EDITING the short clip of me talking about what I do!
