Remember my telling you that I went to see Jane Davies's art show opening in VT? Someone took pictures at the opening and Jane posted one that included me, my daugther Ellen, and her mother-in-law Cathy. Here is the link to picture. Ellen and I are on the right leaning against the jewelry case. Cathy is center left with short blonde hair and wearing a blue shirt. Abby, my 9 year old grand-daughter, was with us but is not in the picture. The picture was taken at the beginning when the Director of the gallery was introducing the artists.
Lynn Krawczyk is offering a workshop on color theory. Looks very good and is a fundamental skill all artists need. I especially like the method she is using with making the same image multiple times in multiple colors to see the difference that different color combinations make.
These are oldies but goodies from Terry Garrard-Dimond's blog. This one is the recipe for a flour paste resist. This one is where a reader has sent in her results. I have yet to try a flour paste resist but this might be the weekend.
As I have been working on finishing some of my fabric monoprints, I came across this blog post. Susan Christensen is doing the same with her monoprints. Here is part of her profile: "Textile artist with background in painting and printmaking." Could almost be me!
After struggling with the composition of one her art quilts, Terry Grant decided to lop off the bottom half--not a little bit but the entire bottom half. It was the right decision and the piece is much stronger as a result of Terry's courage. Terry then came up with a list of guiding principles to follow.
Have a creative week!
