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.”

Otherworldly. I’ve been working with #indigodyeing this week (see my story for details on the process and finished pieces). I can’t help but be intrigued by random drip patterns on the paper I use to move the vat “flower” aside while I’m dyeing.
