There are five pieces each made by five different artists in response to a collage each of us made last summer. This is my textile piece based on the paper collage made by Laurie Bucher. My other four are here on the blog but back a few months. It was such a pleasure working on this as I've been crazed working on the 3 textile exhibitions I'm curating at the Palos Verdes Art Center (opening Jan. 18 from 6-8 then up till March 17) and this was a welcome break - away from the computer!

Buddhist monks have been working on this mandala at the local Palos Verdes Unitarian Church all week. They will be sweeping it away on Christmas to help us remember not to get too attached to material objects. But . . . they were taking photos themselves! Can't blame them - it is gorgeous and done completely from memory.

My 6' Jacob's Ladder will be up at the following exhibition. There is an auditory component too as poet Naomi Guttman has written six short pieces about Jacob's story from the Old Testament and they will be read by her and available for viewers to hear as they look at the ladder. There are lots of pictures of the ladder under construction which you can see if you scroll back through this blog.

Here are a couple of newly completed pieces which have yet to go to the framer. They are called Sea Tangle 2 and 3. They are mixed contemporary media with embroidery. The first is about 11" x 14" and the long one is 24" x 10".
