Sorry it has been awhile since I last posted. I have been doing alot of little experiments on fabric and wood. tying to integrate some fun painting techniques with stitching and fabric. This has been fun but maybe not so interesting for the blog. I have a couple examples here.
The last image is not really completed but I wanted to post it so you will be able to see a bit of the process as I continue to experiment.

In addition to that work I am thinking up another series of work. It still has to do with woman and society but I am going to experiment with photography. This is a departure from the fabric work but I like to switch it up and I love photography. I will work with the images on the computer and manipulate them. This is also alot of fun. However, it takes lots of time. Like everything!

The following are some pieces, one of which is older, that I am experimenting with. I a working with layers and techniques with lace and blackwork. The pieces are smaller so they don't take as long. After that I will try to incorporate what I have learned into some larger pieces. The first to the left is some of the materials I used and set out before I began. I wanted to make sure I did not forget anything.
This one you will probably see again in some different forms. I love the way it turned out.

You may recall this one. This was done on putty and plaster and coated with wax. The painting is done in oil.
This is the 'sketch' for Smoot. I wanted you to be able to see the painting effect on the images. This crackle is something I am working on. I will hopefully use it on a large scale in some new pieces.
