Goings on ...

in the studio

I'm getting back into the studio finally after starting a new job this fall. I thought these (below) were going to be napkins for the household (estate sale vintage linen damask) but they are turning into something far more interesting - don't know what yet. Started with ecoprint bundles around my favorite fall leaves simmered in madder; then painted some natural pigments on that ... followed by a rice paste layer of my water stencil, using some thin tracing paper as a mask. More pigment layers and curing to come.

My daily walks along the shore frequently appear into my work.

From December 6 - January 15th I'm participating in a 3-person show in a pop-up/window gallery in downtown Minneapolis. You can find the details of the show by clicking the postcard image, below.
