On a Roll......
Yes I am. After the nice comment from Joshua in South America yesterday (I think he's in Brazil) I just have to keep it up!

I was sure that spring was never coming and I was really jealous when I received my emailed "muse" letter from Laura Cater-Woods who is not only a wonderful teacher but a great facilitator and creativity coach/cheerleader. She is in Montana and she showed photos of snow melting and the open water near her home and here it was cold and still snowing. Well, this morning I woke up to outdoor temps in the 40s (about 5C) and now it is almost 50. It is also grey and raining but at least it's warm.

And yesterday's work?? Well, I rinsed it out and washed in synthropol and here they are:

Not too bad. The pearl grey with blue wisteria is definitely my choice for most of the shadows. Now I need to trace my sails onto the piece of bamboo fabric that I pretreated with a soda ash soak and then paint on the shadows. Then, it needs to batch over night so, while waiting for that I will go back to working on the little abstracts I started in Sue Benner's class at AQT. Here is one of them:

Fair Wind in Mahone Bay sounds like a nice title.

Finally, my dog, Kaiser. I made him lay down on his "bed" in my studio....see how insulted he looks! You would think he would prefer this to laying on the hard floor but no- it's too far away (maybe 5.5 feet).

Off to my sails!!

    Teri, how did you do your sample piece? Do you mix and store your dyes ahead so you can do things like this or did you just mix up a small amount for the sample? Thanks!!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
