Mad Happenings as Inspiration for Creation

Incoming 12x10

Natural disasters often seem to drive me into the studio.  I created my oil-slick-in-the-gulf piece, "Incoming", during the immediate after shock of the event before I saw newspaper images.  It is dyed cheesecloth, thread trash, beads and decorative threads on monoprinted cotton.

  1. Oh I'm so glad you posted a picture of "Incoming", I love that piece! The two postcard-sized pieces are nice examples of your thread-trash technique, too. Yay!
