we find ourselves with the overgrown laurel, the stoic pine, the shy maple, the sharp
blackberry, the pretty lilac, the willful locust and the helpful camellia… and we are grateful.
feeling inspired for an outdoor performance piece in the driftless region
at the burien community center, right next to a lovely little green space that includes a valley, a playground and gorgeous cedar trees on saturday evening i and many other artists will have art on display and for sale. half the proceeds go to us and the other half to the burien arts league or something like that. here are what i did for this years show… i was half into it and half ready to give in. i thought it would be so easy to get 10 panels that measure 8″x8″ and do whatever i want. i struggled with the idea of only getting $20 per piece, so i feel like i held back. in the end though i figure they are sketches for future pieces. come thru if you can and see all the work… should be interesting :”)
pues aqui sta unos pics de mis trabajos de tapiceria. tengo conexcion a varias diseñadoras quienes tienen sus propias tiendas donde las venden mueblas y cosas para la casa. mas k nada son recovers de piezas ya compradas.
estos dos son mis propios piezas… las hizo usando los scraps de otros trabajos!
Work is going well. The fabric store has given me some great connections and has become quite the conduit for freelance work. From couch cushions, to slipcovers, clothing, costumes, drapes, pillows, car roof liners, vinyl bar stools and more…
I’m glad I invested in an industrial machine! Here’s to more and more work! Also, wish me luck everyone… I just went in for a casual interview with a vintage interiors place! Could be something real special if it works out!
Thank you to Carleen for the fabric samples. It was difficult to cut them, big as they were and well, they ended up as 400 4″ squares). [and some scrap destined for the back of momo] Looks to be a giant prayer shawl for my people out on the plains..let’s begin Keeping it in check is both calming and befuddling…. But Momo watches over us go
