A couple of new pieces

Well, besides taking pictures, I have finished a number of things. This first piece is Canyonlands. It includes pieces of lutradur that has been painted and heated. There are fine lines in the other areas, remeniscent of a topo map. It is mounted via satin stitching to stretched black cotton duck.

I am sorry that this second piece is so off color. The piece is mounted on to a natural color piece of decorator fabric with a great texture to it. The piece was created using transfer dyes and was then foiled via silk screen. I love the way I quilted it...minimally!

I have been working on a series of these pieces (like the last one), one of which will be mounted like a scroll.

Tomorrow I will start putting some of my thoughts about Ted Orland's book, View from the Studio Door. Rayna has started to comment on it so I thought I could add more of my thoughts about it here.

Liz...I love the colors in these two pieces...the foiled piece looks like it's just oozzzing over the top and down the front of the surface..very nice!!! Louise

These are both wonderful and different. I like that you are not stuck in a time warp with your work!!
