I screenprinted the black/red moons; this is called Full Moon, New Moon.

I discharged the purple columns; this is called Sunset on the Forum.

The 2 little quilts are:

Left: a staircase in Slovenia (I know, that's not the name, but I can't spell the city!!)

Right: No One Knew (what color was)

Tempus Finally!

Yea!! Last night we REopened my exhibit at Corner Framing, and this time there were lots of people coming by! Including my 'rents, my baby bro & his sweetie, lots of friends, and random passers-by!

I had 2 glasses of wine, followed by a nice stiff cup of espresso, and went home feeling good!

Here is a little Valentine for all! (currently featured in the exhibit!)

These feature old anatomical drawings of the heart, printed out on fabric, plus lots of stitching!

Tempus Tantrum!

So, ok, lots of agonizing and working late, and we got snowed out!! Although a handful of brave souls mushed through the blustery drifts, it was pretty much a wash-out!!

SOooooo.....we're going to try again next week! Main Street Delaware rescheduled their First Friday festivities, and Linda at Corner Framing is going to break out more treats, and we'll just try again next Friday, Feb. 15th, 6-9ish. But the gallery will be open next week regular hours, and here's a peek! North Wall, South Wall, the snow that kept everyone away, a few of the quilts, and the brownies that were amazine! (Thanks Nicole!)

Tempus Fuggeddaboudit!

Well, I definitely jinxed myself by selecting a title for my exhibit so far in advance!

I play with fabrics and layouts and images and threads, and I find myself trying too hard! By that, I mean, I am too self-conscious of myself while I'm creating work, thinking, "oh, how does that work with the theme, what will people say, will they like it". I don't know how anyone else works, but for myself, my best seems to come out precisely when I STOP worrying about these things, and just start enjoying what happens.

I'm sticking with the title, because it's a good one, but I'm trying NOT to think about it while I work. I'm slipping into this pretentious, artsy-fartsy thought pattern, and that is so not me, not ever! I thought up Red Panty Avenger, for pete's sake!!

Anyway, here are a couple of pieces that ARE finished, for your enjoyment!:
