New Work

I've just finished some new work that is taking me into a new direction - combining painting with clay and even fiber. Wow - all my loves at once (well not people love, just art love). Anyway, a wonderful friend of mine, Sheryl Means told me about this show in New Orleans at the BECA Gallery and I took the challenge. What can I do on a 12x12" canvas that was me. Here are the results. All of these pieces can be purchased through the BECA Gallery at from May 25 - July 3. I have to work on the hot link to their gallery. Frank & I hope to get over to New Orleans during this time to see the work.

We DID IT!!! Misty & I were vendors at the Dallas Fort Worth Fiber Festival and we nearly sold out of everything. It was fantastic. I've put in a couple of her notecards she has created. We sat for three days selling yarn bowls, cups, buttons, notecards (she is a fantastic photographer) and spinning. Yes, spinning. Misty brought her wheel and got to spin some fantastic fibers from the vendors next to us. We had so much fun visiting with knitters, spinners, weavers, fiber people, alpaca owners, etc. It was great. IT's nice to know that a dream we've had came true and actually worked out better than expected. Now it's time to clean up the web page, and get new pictures and supplies ready.
