Lest you think I have fallen off the face of the earth...

This piece I made while I was at Asilomar. I have donated it to my Guild for our defense fund to help raise money for a settlement fee. This is called The First Bud and is the beginning of a new series...curves for a change!

Once I got back from Asilomar, I was much more at peace with myself. I am following the advice I so freely give to others. Take time to play. Not every piece you do has to be a masterpiece, etc.

So I have continued to work in paper and mixed media collage. I have two that I am doing on small stretched canvases, one of which is really good but will show that to you later since I forgot to take a picture.

Anyway, doors and windows hold a lot of fascination for me and I have already done two pieces in fabric about doors so here are six that just have the second layers on them about doors. There are still several more layers to go on, in fact they have already gotten two more layers but I haven't photographed them. I have them all at home to I can sit down with my stamping stuff and other stuff to add more, including lettering.




And I am also working on eight that are butterfly related. These too only have a couple of layers on them and are on old journal pages. I have already added two more layers, including flowers and also have these at home to work on.



And then, just for fun, I pulled in to a parking space and looked at these eyes looking right back at me. Boy did I look funny taking close ups of this tree trunk. You can bet that they will turn up in some of my work!


So today it was down at the studio doing some dye painting and working on my waxed fabrics which I waxed a long time ago. I also did a monoprint which I am looking forward to seeing how it finishes.

Oh my gosh, Liz, why does your guild need a settlement fee?

I love the new pieces, can't wait to see them develop. I agree with you about playing - I think we can all use more play time.

I think that is what I love about a lot of the workshops that I take - time to play with others - no pressure.

Yes, about your guild, do tell!

Wow, LIzzie - you are going off in so many new directions. I'm jealous and immobilized. I should get off the computer and go to WORK!

Those tree-eyes are fabulous and will have me looking at treetrunks in a different way!
