Studio Play Time

Cowgirl Love

Yesterday was a delightful full day in the studio. I had an opportunity to play with several different ideas and mediums. With a focus on creating some smaller items that will sell at the gallery, I sketched out a series of images in the theme: "Cowgirl Love". Here is what I've done so far. I plan to add facial features at some point . . . . maybe (I kind of like them this way, though!)Two years ago, I did a small series of Picasso inspired postcards for Fiberart for a Cause. The postcards were included in an auction at the International Quilt Festival. I know they all sold, and I decided to return to that style for these small quilts. I have a couple more in progress. My plan is to mount them on 16 x 20" painted stretched canvases.

Working with card stock, I painted a series of journal covers.

The painted pieces are sealed with varnish and then adhered to the front of a black canvas covered sketch book.

I really like these. I just placed an online order for several more blank journals (can't find any locally). I have more journal covers in process.

Your work looks very fresh and appealing. I like the cowgirls just the way they are=leaves more to the imagination.

The gallery pieces really look good. I do LOVE the etched pottery. I've never done that. Porcelin in harder to work with than stoneware.
