We were able to see lots of our Florida friends again and spend some time promoting Jerry's products and Art of the Carolinas. Here are some photos from the event:

Here is the (almost) finished piece
From left to right: Meir Bohbot, our West Palm Beach store manager, Sharon Davies, event coordinator for the Florida Watercolor Show, and Joe DiGiulio, Education Advisor for Jerry's of Raleigh.
Here's Joe with our favorite customer, Marilynne (Monroe) Rowland. She's just the sweetest gal around!
And here's me with Marilee on the left (Marilynne's daughter)
and Ms. Marilynne Monroe herself on the right!
Speaking of which...here are a couple of shots of some new things I've been working on. This is folded and dyed heavy muslin. Dyed with Procion Dyes. I love the random, yet organization of each of the designs shown here. Uh, this is only the beginning! I'm really enjoying working with fabric and incorporating it with acrylics, dyes, resists. I'm basically working on my "stash" right now. I think after AOC, I'll work on creating some art quilts and hangings or maybe incorporate these fabrics into my collages. The choices are endless, but I really love this stage because it is all just experimenting. Such well deserved relaxation for my other side of the brain!
This is the beginning of a resist...
And these are about five pieces of fabric with different resists waiting to be revealed. I think I'll let them soak until tonight after work.
Oh, and one more thing...only 250 more shirts to dye for the show! WooHoo!
