I have been nursing a bit of a cold… and since my studio temperature can hover at 55 degrees (really!) during the coldest days of winter, I have been resisting the urge to busy myself at the felting table until I am 100%. In the meantime, I continue my sketch process (along with various internet-related tasks). This recent batch of sketches are all in ink, all slightly toned with chalk. Feeling for the groove – ink is demanding but inviting; still, I cannot resist overlaying it with the tone and loose, almost gestural mark from chalk. The paper is part of a cheap, acid-free, mixed-media sketch pad/98 lb, mildly toothy. Probably need to graduate to better paper….I have acquired some and it is patiently waiting for me to “grow up.”
Receptive #4 heads to the #Hambidge auction next week.
Final day of the natural dye print workshop (this past Sunday) - a resounding success! Thank you to all who participated! I’m also grateful for the space and facilities at the SEFAA Center. 🎉More images in stories.

Meanwhile…3-d work in progress.
Some examples of print/paint process with #naturaldyes. I’m teaching a 2-day IRL workshop in mid-September - more info from me soon or visit @sefiberarts / fiberartsalliance.org for their workshop listings. Space is limited.
Strange year for me, much of it spent outside of the studio - but that’s about to change….I began cutting and assembling these pieces earlier this year, a continuation of the stitched module series I started during “lock-down” last year. Now I’m preparing these for framing.
@swancoachhousegallery Summer Invitational continues through August 12th.
