Am streaming live tonight at 9pm Central - http://www.ustream.tv/channel/plastered-and-waxed Plaster, Earth Pigments, and if I have some time will add some wax to some of the pieces. Come on by and chat a bit while I experiment in my studio!
Hung my solo show in the "Ding Darling" Gallery at the Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge Center today. It looks great, there will be info sheets hanging between the large panels. It took us, Doreen and I, an hour to hang these panels.
I can see I need to work on my hanging mechanisms, it's picture wire on the back but for some reason they really lean forward.
My "Fields" series was accepted by the staff at the Neal Smith Wildlife Refuge, in Prairie City, IA, to hang from October 1 through the end of November. I cannot wait to see all 22 pieces hanging again!!!
Made my debut today on Ustream with my first live test and all went well, thank you to Dale Anne and Diana for stopping by and critiquing! I will be adjusting the cameras tonight and will be streaming live tomorrow from my studio 3-5pm Central Time. Pre-Chat will begin at about 2:30ish PM Central Time.
I missed the deadline for QN again! I know I know the actual deadline is tomorrow but in order for my entry to make it there tomorrow I would have had to have shipped it, overnight no less, yesterday! How about that for logic!
Sandstone No. 4 WIP
Anyway, because I was busy plugging away on my latest body of work, for my solo show, I fell behind way behind. Absolutely no one's fault but my own, that and I'm seriously in a cow and field encuastic painting mode, the need to switch gears back to fiber just wasn't happening. So the above piece is STILL in progress, I have three more pieces in my Sandstone series in various stages of progression, waiting on the fabrics to rust and compost to the desired level of doneness is also taking forever with this summers crazier than ever weather.
