The past few days I have had several Etsy sales and lots of good news. Avocados are free and plentiful, and I've been making lots of work. Well, I have started a lot of new things. The above image is my works-in-progress wall of my studio apartment. There are a bunch of ferriswheel etchings, some fossil/seashell pictures that have been hanging around for a while, and the purply wine-drawings I started last night.
Sometimes a girl's just gotta have some wine, put on Lord of the Rings, and draw some pictures. Lately I've been doing so much "tight" sewing, that it was really a nice switch to just draw. I was drawing from johnny jump-ups and some of my dissected pocket watches, but the finished pieces will not be entirely representational.
Five years ago I was installing my Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition. Below are a couple of low-quality images of the very-large quilt-like pieces from that show. These were silkscreen on mulberry paper, with sewing, tea and watercolor. They had a lot of insane detail; sometime I should re-photograph these guys. One is in my parent's collection, and the other is in "the archive". The top orange grove was the first time I had printed an edition and then proceeded to sew all the prints together. So long ago....
This time last year, I was gearing up for my Thesis Exhibition...but that's for another post.
