A glimpse of the prints I've been working on! Just a few more sessions and I should have some final prints

My studio, although I haven't really been there in a few weeks...

Sunday, June 12, 2011


I've been debating for a while whether or not I want to have a separate blog for posting other people's art.

Today, I've done just that.

Don't worry, blogspot, I'm not going anywhere. Just a change of scenery.

Topsy Turvy, Color Studies, and more

I've almost finished the Topsy-Turvy doll. Just a few more finishing touches, that I will photograph and post ASAP!

I've also started some color studies. I built some tiny cardboard boxes so I can paint the same shape in different colors, on different color fabrics.

AND some more portraits for the Influential Women series.

AND! I went to the BYO Printshop on Tuesday and etched my plates for the Inanimate Objects Touching Each Other Inappropriately series. Next week: proofing, and maybe getting some good prints done!

Works in Progress

I guess this is what I've been spending most of my time on lately. Also the Portraits of Female Influences During my Youth. I've got another of those to post soon, too!

Boxes! Boxes? Boxes for a serious-as-shit color study. Estimated 40 studies on paper. Get ready!

Also, the Girl in the Green Ribbon prints are just about ready! I need to decide on prices, and get them for sale in some shoppes before I sell them to friends. But I will keep you posted, faithful followers!

Productivity and Bereavement

Somewhat luckily, my computer was feeling a bit under the weather for a few weeks there. So, naturally, I have been spending a lot of time in the studio.

I finally finished the barbie piece, but now I have to build individual shadow boxes for each of them.

I've also been working on a series of portraits of the women who inspired me when I was a child. Its a fun project, only using black and white paint, on paper, and I'm leaving them relatively loose.

Margaret Sanger

Rachel Carson

More to come!

Also in the works: a painting inspired by the classic film Ever After, starring Drew Barrymore!

And: whether or not I ever finish it, I'm starting a quilt in which every square will depict a photograph that I have of Hans, who died a little over a month ago. I may sew his ashes into a mesh material on the opposite side, and display it hanging from the middle of a room. We'll see how far I even get with it. One step at a time, one day at a time.

Updates and Promises

Lots of changes coming soon. Working on a lot of awesome stuff, finishing up some awesome stuff too!

Even updated my website, thanks to Christiane Moore who held my hand (pretty much did the work for me)

Rolling Stone

(The Stone Baby)

I know I keep saying that I'm working on so many projects, but I really am! It's just that I have too many at once, and I don't make a ton of progress on any of them in particular. But, I've gotten the ball rolling, and once its rolling, I should be able to keep things from gathering moss.

I ordered my spinning wheel, and should be getting that in the mail tomorrow! I am going to use it for my root structure, and then of course for fun yarn spinning, and I'd like to start dying yarn with natural dyes (particularly beets!)

I am currently knitting a mobius strip scarf (yes, the right way!... ok, I had some help.)

And I finally scanned in my negatives, with the help of wonderful Eli. We don't really know what we're doing, and it turns out that I scanned them in much too small, but now at least I can see what I've got! Next Thursday I'll go back to the darkroom and scan 'em right!

And, I've even started taking a French class: one step closer to applying to Penn ...the GREs, on the other hand, are going to rip me a new one. One step at a time.

I'm not a high speed train, I'm just glad to be a rolling stone.
