Completed 6/8/17 – eight days ahead of my deadline. Yahoo!
I completed the punch needle last week and then began fiddling with beads and fabrics. So far this is what the piece looks like after two work days of false starts with many different bead designs, colors, spacings, etc., etc. My deadline is fast approaching. Hopefully I’ll have things under control by Saturday or Sunday! Wish me luck………………

Working steadily on another in my resplendence series. The photos below show my workspace and the front and back of the piece.
In punch needle the work is done from the back often turning the front into quite a surprise.
There is some dimensional punching in this piece. Dimensional punching can only be discerned from the front.
Working on yet another in my resplendence series. Hoping to finish by June 16………… The drawing is complete. Let the punching begin!
Finally finished on April 23, 2017!
Great news! Just received my letter from the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. Both of my entries, “Random Colors, Random Thoughts #2” and “Random Colors, Random Thoughts #3” were juried into the upcoming exhibit, Hamilton Current.
Being juried into this show is quite an honor!
Join me at the opening reception. It is free and open to the public and will celebrate the 48th Hamilton Current and Miami University Regionals Art Students on Saturday, April 29th, 5:00 – 7:00pm.
For a sneak peek “Random Colors, Random Thoughts #2” is one of the pieces that cycles through on my Home Page. It’s the abstract in many shades of green. The colors were chosen at random from my green floss stash. The shapes were punched randomly without a drawing or color plan. Not the way I usually work!
Another woman (this one resembling lady liberty), another crown. How could I not react to the current political situation?
Last Thursday I delivered two works to the Fitton Center for Creative Arts in Hamilton, Ohio. Hopefully they will be juried into the exhibit, Hamilton Current. It’s kind-of like playing the lottery. We all know you can’t win if you don’t buy a ticket. In this case, work can’t be selected if it isn’t there!
I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Saturday February 11, 2017 and I’m busily working on the second piece in my Resplendence series – punch needle, bead, and fabric representations of women wearing mandala-like crowns.
Here are some photos of the work in progress.
The final photo (not here just yet) will show the finished work including all concentric beaded background layers.
