So, what’s it been, like two years since my last post? Maybe not quite that long ago but long enough. Seems I told everyone I was going to Etsy. Tried it for a while. Wasn’t quite ready. So I apologize for sending you off in that direction only to find that there is nothing on my Etsy page. Except……I’m sure once you got to Etsy, you found plenty of wonderful things to look at.
I have, in the past year or two, been doing all kinds of interesting things. Working with fiber artists and musicians. Drifting along in the ebb and flow of time. Enjoying the scenery along the way. Well, some scenery has been a little disturbing. Fact is, I became obsessed with the last election and have had a long time obsession with climate change issues.
In fact, I’ve been camped out on Facebook quite a bit for the past four or so months. Just called a moratorium on that. It’s time to get back to making art and living life to the fullest. Don’t be surprised, however, if you see some global warming related posts here from time to time.
I have gently and easily found my way into my new role as Creative Guide, strategically guiding creative individuals toward successful goal achievement. There will be more about this later.
I have most recently been working with Mary Mortenson of Shibori4U. She does beautiful shibori died wool which is then made into vests, jackets and an occasional coat. For my own creativity, I just dyed some wool and silk with a purple carrot. Something did not work out so well with that, as most of the gorgeous color went down the drain after hours on the stove. I will try again, as my guess is that it was because I did not mordant properly. This fall I was melting plastic and making plastic collages. Likely the sheets will be cut into strips and incorporated into larger fiber collages.
And yes, I do have plans to get something up on Etsy. Any day now.
Happy holidays and Peace to all.
