Another Opening, Another Show

Wednesday, March 5th, 2008

Tomorrow, my daughter Lisa and her friend, Lorena, are arriving from San Francisco for the week-end. Lisa has a show opening here on Friday night.


On Sunday, I am heading over to Tillamook, on the coast of Oregon, for the opening of “It’s Good to be Green!”


I have to be there at 11 am to be videotaped for a little film that will run throughout the duration of the show. It will feature interviews with some of the artists. Terry will be there, too. Then, I will be able to show you the piece that I did. A CD catalog is available here.

I managed to get a bit more work done on the kimono collage. I forgot to get a photo of the background. So, you will just have to imagine what it looked like. Once that is fused down, I started cutting circles of various sizes from the fabrics. I have one of those handy, dandy Olfa circle cutters.

My mission is to blur the background grid so that it no longer looks like a grid!


Here it is a little further along with some red strips which I will add to the piece and hopefully make them look as if they are weaving in and out of the fabric pieces.


I am not sure how much time I will have to work on this until Monday – which is frustrating because I am having so much fun.

Oops, almost forgot to mention. I was back up .2 of a pound today. This is getting old!! But I will hangeth in.
