But with that said, Archeology, (apologies for the poor photography)
is hanging in Churchill Down's new development, "The Mansion". It can be seen on this video at the 40 second mark and again at a minute and a half in the background. At the 42-3 second mark, another textile artist, Ramona Lindsey's work can be seen in the background on the right. The pieces were selected from the walls of Kore Gallery and also included 10 pieces by resident artist Donald Cartwright. The work will be there for 100 days. Kudos to Churchill Downs for selecting art by local artists to enhance their space.
Today I was at the top of my game! I was up early before Peter left for work and decided to have him drop me off at the studio. We are down to 1 car but I am giving praise and feeling grateful because the other car was totaled in a wreck 2 weeks ago and no injuries were reported. He was coming home from work on a Friday and a mile from home when a young man ran into the back of a van and the van ran into the back of Peter and he had to slam his breaks to keep from ramming the car in front of him. The young man was speeding and had a baby in the car but at the time of the accident no injuries of all involved were reported and for that our inconvenience is like water off a duck...no big deal.
But I was in the studio at 6:45 am, no, make that 6:45 AM! take a peek at what I did inside my own mansion....
I doodled feathers. I finally have a quilt where I think feather quilting will be enhancing. I've never quilted feathers other than practice.
And the below images are fabrics that I designed yesterday and today...
It is this last piece that it hit me why I love marbling...not just the process which is fickle but the out come...it achieves the same ethereal appearance that encaustic art has. I've decided to let the notion of experimenting with encaustics go...(just not prudent) and let the marbling be my encaustics.
