I got all the leaves scanned in quickly, before they start to lose the tones and markings. I think these are going to be great once I get them blown up and look at them closely. I scanned about 20 of these so I will have lots to choose from for future pieces.

I had a nice surprise this week! I had applied to the Art In Embassies program sometime back and hadn't heard anything. But this week I was contacted by the curator of the program to include Reflections, Burano, Italy, var. 2 in the 2.5 year exhibition for the official U. S. Embassy residence in Vientiane, Laos. She wrote:
" We are interested in focusing on fiber works as there is a strong textile tradition in Laos, as well as on water imagery, as the Mekong River is the life blood of the country. Your work, and particular your Reflections series, seems to be a perfect fit for the project."
After thinking about it for a nanosecond I said yes. I am thrilled and honored to be included and am reminded that getting your work out there may take time but good things can happen in unexpected times and ways!

This is a detail from my piece - Linden Leaf Rag that is currently on display at my solo exhibit, Summer's End, at the Arboretum in Madison. I have been picking up various leaves this week to press and save for future projects and it reminded me that I had not put this work up yet on the blog.

This spinning lightbulb has shape shifted in it's shadow. I tried to take sevral shots as it spun around and made myself dizzy. Seems to be the theme of the day - I have been sewing miles of satin stich on my Birch Forest peice and I need to go outside and look into the distance awhile to recuperate!

I am embellishing my latest art cloth piece (tentatively titled Birch Forest) with a needle felter through the silk/hemp fabric. I like that it is creating the look of holes or breaks in the birch bark pattern. I have 7 panels to do so this will be a project!

I am back from a good week at Art Cloth Studios in San Antonio, TX. OUr Mastery Program group met and worked for 6 days. We will be having an exhibit in San Antonio next spring so there is lots to be done. While there I got to take photos of things I don't see here. This was a very large elelphant ear leaf ( I think!). I like that the large veins are in red - reminded me of our own blood system!
