There is a new Spring in my step. I have been given a new lease on life, and with that comes my desire to reawaken this site and share some of my more recent creations.
More to follow!
A tree, leaves, spirals, fruit, human hands – this is a detail/close-up photo of a banner I’m working on for a church. After it’s been presented (November) I’ll be able to post a photo of the entire banner.
This has been in process since May. It makes my heart sing to work with colors I love and symbols that are important to me.
Made of cotton fabrics via applique´.
Detail from a purple cotton stole, with a spiral flame design in gold lamé. This design can be created in whatever color scheme you wish.
Cosmic Temple in process in the foreground, with Moonrise With Willow visible through the fabric archway window.
This photo was taken in my new workspace.
This year, ArtsWalk will be in Chatham as well as in Hudson, NY. The Opening Party is from 6 to 9 PM at the Columbia County Fairgrounds on October 8th, with events and exhibits happening in many places throughout Chatham over the weekend. Shops on Main Street have donated their window space to local artists. The event is sponsored by the Columbia County Council on the Arts. I will be at Opening Night, and my work will be in a couple of venues. I hope to see you there!
Settling in, unpacking as I continue work on the Temple.
My thread stash is on the wall,
the buttons are (mostly) in their jars,
and Somebody’s Aunt Martha has found a window seat.
In bits and pieces, I am finding snippets of time to play with light, energy, and new elements, as I continue work on the Temple of the Cosmos.
It’s a bit crowded and chaotic, but everything has now been moved to my studio in the renovated barn. Planning an Open House in June ~ date TBA.
Local artists and fine craftspeople associated with ChathamArt gathered this evening for pizza cooked on an outdoor grill (plus salads [green and fruit]), and the wine flowed freely. Dinner was followed by cookies and ice cream, plus a confusing but riotous game loosely based on Pictionary, as only artists would interpret it! It was the perfect end for a day spent cutting and stacking wood and moving to my new studio.
We’re already planning our next gathering. To learn more about this loosely but warmly knit group, visit ChathamArt. Based in Columbia County, NY.
