The Exciting Conclusion

Art Drying in the SunThe final day of Fabrications; the thrills, the chills…

The art is drying outside so we can get it packed up at day’s end (click to enlarge any photo). After 3 days of frenzied activity, I had 7 pieces either finished or near finished and a good start on an 8th. OK, so some of them are unmitigated crudola. It’s hard to layer a bazillion different techniques on one canvas and not over do it a bit  :oP”””

Green Man.

I won’t even show you the ones that are going to get cut-up, but here are the ones that are only “bad”.
Green Man is done, if I put any more layers on this one, it will implode from it’s own weight.

Planet - in progress.

Planet is still in progress. I have hopes that it can be saved but I’m probably being a bit optimistic. If you never see an update on this one, you know I lost the battle.

A bit better.

This one has some hope, it only has 3 layers and I’m thinking it doesn’t need much more.

Better  yet….

This was the cloth I used to wipe off my brushes and marking tools – what is wrong with the fact I like this better than most of my artistic attempts. Sad, that.

My Favorite!This is my favorite. Simple, clean; only ink, gesso, and a touch of paint. This one definitely has a future, maybe to be mounted on a raw edge stripped quilt back ground?

Favorite - detailMy conclusions? The class was fabulous. I was enthralled with some of the techniques. I did miss the feel of fabric that is not coated with gesso or gloss medium. But some of the ideas and the methodology we acquired will find its way into my future efforts. I also learned the value of less is more. I think I would have liked my pieces more if I had simply limited myself to 3 layers per canvas.

Ya, less is best.

  1. Hello,

    I was looking for fellow fiber art bloggers and I stumbled across your blog. I was stunned to see you were in Michigan too! Small world. I am just starting a blog for our festival in Marshall. I have you bookmarked!

    Thanx,

    Rick
