Yes, it has been a considerably long time since my last post. :(:( The workload of the final semester of school was intense, as was the work to move to a new apartment and studio in Philadelphia in early summer. Graduation came so quickly! Now the dream of expressing myself through art is a reality….and the dream starts here:
This is my new studio, along with my trusty sidekick, Luke. Isn’t it great?!?!? I am having such a great time working and playing there!!!!
I was recently introduced to the fun properties of Dupont Tyvek…you know: those funky, plastic-y, nearly indestructible white envelopes you get in the mail? I painted it and heated it, and look at them!!! They are the foundation for my next two works!
Here is one little corner with stitching added:
The extra little “iron deposits” of color back onto the paper, as well as the curlings on the ends is just soooooo titillating to me, to say nothing of the fabulous color and texture!!!!! I’ve started adding stitching…. oh, my! I am so excited!!!! I can’t wait to see the finished piece!!! LOL
Here is one done in blue with the Tyvek integrated into the stitching instead of the stitching being integrated in to the Tyvek as above. I just love playing like this!!!!
Off to play again. See you soon! (I promise!)
