I Am Still Alive!

I don't know if any of you are bloggers, but I started this with such high hopes and now find myself to be a very poor blogger indeed. Its nearly a year since I last posted, and I'm only at it now because I've accumulated too much guilt to avoid it any longer.

So first off I will bring you up to date on some of my current/recent exhibits and activities. At the right is a piece and a detail view called 'Test Pattern 1' that is on tour with My World in Black and White. The background is comprised of commercial fabrics and the test pattern was created with PaintStiks. If I recall correctly it is about 36" square.

I've found myself doing a lot of work in black and white lately. It is very satisfying and I'm not missing out on the color as much as I thought I would. There are two other pieces in this series, one in the quilting stage and one ready for quilting. I also have a large B&W piece I'm working on called "Shattered". All involve the use of the PaintStiks which are one of my favorite media. Unlike most artists I've talked to, I do not work that often with brushes or rubbings. I prefer to use them directly like the big crayons we used as toddlers. Perhaps that is because I tend to have a heavy hand with my tools anyway, so it is far more convenient to apply directly. I may be a lot of things, but timid isn't one of them!

Maybe that will whet your appetite. Tomorrow I will post my piece for the SAQA auction.
