In The Studio

Believe it or not I AM working....on lots of projects at a time.  This is one of them.  As you can see my studio is full of stuff...too much in fact...but it's where I feel most comfortable.

On the easel is my painting 'Firefront'..a heavily impastoed surface.  Detail below:

I'll have to take a better photo.

This is my postcard for the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap.  It is now on its way to Judith Dziadosz in the USA. It had to contain fabric, stitching and text.

Stencilled on text, with rust-dyed fabric, burnt paper and gold thread, this postcard is but one of the smaller works that occupy me while I'm resting between large paintings.

Other smaller works that keep me amused are ATCs that I swap with all sorts of people...mostly on Paper Traders.  They set themes that occasionally grab me , some of which I've illustrated below.

When Granny Joined The Circus - for Oddball Ancestors

Guilt Free Pleasure - for My Wish For You

This Ol' House - for Postage Stamp People

These are usually collaged using images from various sources, sometimes digitally altered.

These projects have enabled me to collect quite an accumulation of tiny art pieces from all over the world.
