Finishing Touches

I have to send in my inventory for the Japanese Garden show at the end of the week. So I am trying to get everything done. Here are the two little framed pieces that I did. After seeing the photos of last night’s lunar eclipse, I have named them Lunar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipse 2. I had a little problem with reflection in the glass. The actual work is about 4 and half inches square.

I also finished the winter bamboo fence. This has a facing and will have a silver bamboo hanging rod.

And a closeup:

I like the original bamboo fence better, but this was fun to work on.

I need to attach the bamboo rods to this and two other pieces. I also have several silk scarves that I am putting in the show.

VIRTUAL IRAQ WAR PROTEST: Time for an update on the virtual protest. I hope that those of you who received bumper stickers and have not sent me a jpeg of your sticker for the virtual protest will still do so. I just added a new photo. If you have not checked out the virtual protest which is on my Flickr page, just click on the End this/endless bumper sticker on my sidebar.

    Gerrie, this Winter Bamboo piece is just too awesome! I love it. I like what you did with your shibori pieces too.

    The Winter Bamboo piece is so evocative… Asian, organic, and cold. I really love this one. The shibori pieces look great framed, and you did good with the names.

    Your framed dots are very elegant. Simple and clear. I really like those…they use the shibori patterns really effectively.

    Hi, Gerrie –
    The titles are marvelous! Your show should be wonderful in the Japanese Gardens – I loved visiting there when my sister lived in Vancouver. Now she’s in Mesa… Boo Hoo! I’ve no real desire to go there, but I’d love to go back to Washington/Oregon!
    Take lots of photos at the show for us!

    Nicely done! I was planning to go to the opening this afternoon, but got involved in rearranging my studio space, and before I knew it, it was after 2. I’ll be on upper Burnside tomorrow, anyway, and will hit the show after lunch. Can’t wait to see it!
