Somerset Home Magazine

I am excited to announce that I am featured in the current issue (vol 6) of Stampington's shelter/style magazine called Somerset Home.  Pick up your copy and begin reading at 100.  My article is about felt rugs!  It is styled beautifully.

Yellow is getting there

The sling is almost finished being wet felted, (the above photo is before any water hit the fiber) I am fine tuning the shaping with hand forming, and then I' will be finished with the YELLOW Challenge!  (Which I think was really more of a challenge in time management than anything else!!)

What do you do on Tuesday Evenings?

I mentioned in previous posts that I have been going to an open studio set up for life drawing on Tuesday evenings. I am really loving the way my mind thinks when I am staring at naked people...hmmm what kind of clothes can they be wearing? How can I get pattern and color into an image that basically is just the human form against a white wall?  I am experimenting with patterning the shadows - love that! and this past Tuesday well, heck I just put pattern all around and on the model.  I was thinking Gondolier but I think he turned out a bit more Polynesian.

This last pose intrigued me, this fella was very bleached blond and a bit tanned into burned in his face and upper torso, but as he laid there the color just blended down to almost white where the sun don't shine!
