Friday the 13th


A very spooky night indeed!

I've never found this day to be unlucky for me.
(knock on wood...)
Happy Friday.

Channeling my inner Vera...


Looks like a Vera scarf to me.
If you're not familiar with Vera Neumann look her up.
(she was a wonderful textile designer)

Harvest



I was inspired to reinterpret this Josef Frank textile from the early 1900s.
(bottom image)
Thought the harvest like theme was very appropriate for this time of year.

Textiles have always held a special place in my heart.  
It's what I got my degree in at R.I.S.D.

Hello there October.


I don't do a shout out for every month but October I'm fond of you.
You're still warm, the sky swirls with falling leaves, & there's a playfulness to you.  A time when kids & adults can play dress up with the reward of candy.  Things can get a little scary but hopefully, not too frightening. (you never know anymore)
October, I'm ready for your dark delights!

X-ray Flowers...


October, I see you!

This is a floral mono print.
I thought it needed some detail so I went back in with orange & brown pen.
It reminds me of an x-ray.

Collecting Flowers


Here's a piece that I've been working on in a program called Painter.
Years ago I used it on a regular basis.  As my projects required more layers & a more universal software I eventually found my way to Photoshop.  I've missed all the textures & brush that Painter has to offer & I recently got the updated program.  (So crashing is less of an issue now- which is always a huge YAY!)

See Ya Later Summer!


Labor day weekend is always a little bittersweet.
Summer is my favorite season but all good things come to an end.

Most of my summer check list has been completed:
  1. -eat lots of watermelon
  2. -add sprinkles to most things
  3. -play in the sun
  4. -keep the flowers alive
  5. -swim like a fish
  6. -gracefully let go of the season... (still working on this one)
*Now I'll start shopping for sweaters!
