Summer Meadows

     I spent an inordinate amount of time waiting for things here in Vermont this past week. As my daughter reminded me-we are on "Vermont time" not real time. Which means when you are waiting on a repair person who is coming in the morning, 7pm at night is just on time. He made it the day he said he would.

    So I waited for people and waited even longer for fabric that was due last week. I only needed to dye two yards of navy blue to finish a piece I am working on now. Not done yet. So, I did some therapy strips and just chilled.

Summer Meadows, 9x12




 I love the colors of the meadows and wildflowers here. Along with the sunshine. No different than the flowers in Michigan, but I think I just am able to take time and enjoy them. This piece should have been much larger but I made just a few too many cuts....so tiny it is.




    Found a few more stray pieces to dye  some gentle colors.


Tried to overdye some browns and blacks but still couldn't get deep dark brown or black. I am not sure what went wrong here. Also. played with some thermofax screens and one silkscreen.



And for one or two of you missing mountains, a hazy mountain shot on a ninety degree day earlier this week. Yes, I am high up in the mountains.

Enjoy your summer and be creative, my friends!

  1. Enjoy your slow days in the clear beautiful mountains! I'm drooling over that big yellow surface designed piece on the line.
