I just put up the picture above, of my "Flowers of the Arab Spring" piece in progress hanging on the clothesline in my studio. It's the back you're seeing, with the crazy grid quilting on the section of the back that's a batik of peace symbols. I put my works up on the line, to check to see where I still need to add some more sewing, and then to look for stray dangling threads I may have missed, before I photo the piece. This one will be done in a couple of days, and THEN I can put up pix of the front finished. For now you can see pix of my sketches and me airbrushing it though. Click on any of the little pix, and you'll go to the big versions, which you can then click through. I love Facebook for that, and my albums are always visible to everyone, not just my FB friends.
article about Jimmy and his leather work, by Art Holden in our newspaper, The Daily Record, on February 13th. Here's Jimmy with a really swanky fly fishing equipment case he made in the Fall.
"French Toast" and read my artist's statement about it in my Turtle Moon Studios 2011 gallery.
I took a few pix of Dr Vi, and drew this piece freehand, after making a few drawings in my sketchbook. I guess I'll put up a new blog when I get Viola finished. The benefit auction for the Free Clinic, which I'm donating it to, is on April 4, at Montavino Wine Market here in Wooster. More pix of this painting in progress. Read Dr Startzman's bio at the Free Clinic's site.
I just started a blog for Wooster Natural Foods, our Co-op here in town, that was called Wooster Food Co-op until 2001. I've been the president of the Council for our Co-op for a long time, and just decided to consider switching us from a boring little website to a lively blog.
In the process of doing that, I figured out how to create static pages for a blog, so I now plan to make some new pages here on my own blog: artist's statement, classes, resume, etc. Sooooooon.
I've been very active on my Facebook page, but need to get back here, too. I will. Hang on! Time for lunch!
