1. This artwork is finished and I need to put it up on my website:

The center of the artwork is based on a photo from The Garbage Day Project and is an ironic comment about making beauty from garbage.
2. Work continues on my Merge and Flow piece for the Surface Design Associate’s member show in 2011.
This is Layer 6, but really more like 6 – 9 as it is layer upon layer of stitching.
This is Layer 8 which is screenprinted and painted tissue paper applied with gel medium. If you would like to see more photos of Layers 7 and 9, please visit my Facebook Fan Page. You don’t need to join Facebook to visit the page; I do tend to post their a bit more frequently.
3. I have started new artwork for an invitational juried exhibition. I can’t say too much about it, but I can say that my theme is the difference between life lived online and offline.
I touched this piece of mystery fabric (purchased at the Textile Garage Sale in MN a couple of years ago) and, to be honest, it felt a little bit like skin. Sort of soft and malleable. This is just laying down what I call a natural grid. A grid, but not too rigid or regular. Next up will be some lettering (the heart of the piece).
