Gyre 10

This is a painting on layers of ripped, stitched commercial fabrics made by me and my nephew - Alex Shirwo, an artist in his own right.

Sneak Peek

The eight panels of Chroma are now entirely finished.  They are at the framer (Kathy's Gallery in Torrance) awaiting delivery to the photographer, but I couldn't wait to show off even these snapshots.  They are all 80"  tall and about 50" wide.  I'm the proud mama after 3.5 years!  Of course I'll post the great professional shots when they are done in a couple of weeks.

Two Thing I Don't Normally Do

First:  I don't often post work by other artists, but I was at the Honolulu Museum of Art last week and saw an amazing fiber exhibit.  Much great work, but the knock out piece was this one by Ann Page - no longer active;  paper, ink and stitching.  This is a detail, but the overall work was about 5' square.

Second:  I don't often post my travel pix as this is an ART blog, but we were at Pearl Harbor where the USS Iowa is still bleeding oil into the sea.   I need say no more.  (Then one irresistible shot of North Shore Oahu just because!)
