The OLD New Year

Remember last New Year's Eve?   The ball descending at Times Square?  My experience is that sometimes those balls fall and slowly dissolve like bubbles into thin air as the year unwinds.  Wishing one and all happiness into 2016 and beyond!!

Texturizers Round 6

Just finished my piece in the round robin series I'm working on with seven other artists.   As usual, I can't show their work, but I can show my response to it.   Lots of crisscrosses and gorgeous grays!


Just Finished Another Painting!

As a tapestry weaver and stitcher I am AMAZED how fast painting is - only a week to complete another one (vs. YEARS for a tapestry if the same dimensions).    And so much fun.   This one is layers and layers of acrylics, tissue, string, Angelina, snippets of this and that.   I'm going to do one more in the series as I haven't quite gotten the channels as deep as I want them and their walls as high and gnarly.

Painting? Textile? Mixed Media?

I've been experimenting with all sorts of media lately including paint.   Greatly influenced by Mark Bradford's brilliant solo show at the Hammer this fall.  This is a detail shot of a piece I just finished.  Lots more of this to come . . .  Oh, yea, did I mention Silly String?
