A friend gifted me this lovely mohair blanket this week. Not entirely sure how I’m going to handle it and prep it for hooking. Any ideas anyone? It’s a very loose weave.
I finished deconstructing my greys and blacks this week. It took six hours total. I have a lot of greys and blacks. I put them back on the shelf today.
Works in Progress
I’m also back at “Moss”. It is taking a long time for a variety of reasons. One has been developing my new website. Then there was the rewriting of course syllabuses lost in the computer switch over that didn’t happen in the end, earlier this year. Another is it is a large wall hanging for me at 1′ x 5′. I am finding it a bit of a challenge staying focused on that large a piece. Then there’s the colour planning of the piece. I like the colours well enough, but I’m not sure I’m conveying the image I want with the piece. But I do plan to finish it. Hopefully in time for the Cathedral Village Arts Festival Street Fair on May 27th.
I had a great class again on Saturday and plan to prepare for another one this coming weekend. Sorry, I will not be teaching any classes in April. Instead I will be preparing for, going to, and recovering from a trip to South Korea! Looking forward to the change of scenery for a bit. Classes will resume Saturday, May 6th with a Finishing class. If you want to register contact me by April 24th.
Exhibit at the AGR
I dropped off my wall hangings Friday afternoon for the Art Gallery of Regina Salon Show and Sale. The show starts Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at the Art Gallery of Regina in the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre on Elphinstone Street in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. I will be in attendance at the opening from 7:30 – 8:30 PM. As mentioned Friday, those wanting a studio tour please let me know and I can arrange to open my home studio in the evenings for guests.
Talk to you all later.
