I started out by dyeing some fabric, and working in the studio on some more little bags! Here are a couple of shots:
These are all hand painted.
These are made with some new fabrics my sister gave me, some batiks and other assorted treasures!
Then I FINALLY started on my M4-T Challenge (Twenty Two Tantalizing Treasures)! This is the 2010 Carolina Mixed Media Art Guild Challenge. Of course I put this off since January 14th, when registration opened. I have been procrastinating and waiting for that wonderful moment when a brilliant idea would pop into my head...well, that's why I am just now beginning! I did have a moment in the middle of the night when I wasn't sleeping well. I actually remembered all the details until morning and grabbed my sketchbook to record everything. Yes! So happy to finally have an idea and then even happier to have had the entire day to create! I would love to post the progress thus far, but we are sworn to secrecy until the opening of the show. Mark your calendars now and please check out the results of this extremely talented and wonderful group of gals! The opening is Friday, March 26th from 5pm-9pm at Artist Alley in Downtown Southern Pines. Owner, Jeanne Skipper is once again hosting us and the show will be up until April 23rd! It's 8pm and I have seriously been in the studio ALL DAY! Guess I'd better go make a salad or something for dinner...
