in the studio
I’m getting back into the studio finally after starting a new job this
fall. I thought these (below) were going to be napkins for the household
(estate sale vintage linen damask) but they are turning into something
far more interesting – don’t know what yet. Started with ecoprint
bundles around my favorite fall leaves simmered in madder; then painted
some natural pigments on that … followed by a rice paste layer of my
water stencil, using some thin tracing paper as a mask. More pigment
layers and curing to come.
My daily walks along the shore frequently appear into my work.
From December 6 – January 15th I will be in a 3-person show in a pop-up/window gallery in downtown Minneapolis. You can find the details of the show by clicking the postcard image, below.
