I am giddy over this whole thing!
My first assignment is to create 26 pieces, all related in subject matter, size, and material. This is a big assignment!
I struggled with how to approach this- paintings, drawings, stitching, French knots?? So I stepped back and looked at everything that I love the most- what ends up in my sketchbooks, what surrounds me in my studio, the subject matter that I seem to circle back to over and over- and I decided to do assemblages. I am layering linen, cotton organdy, wool Melton, etc and painting and stitching the layers. Using birds as my inspiration- feathers, nests, eggs, and birds are all involved. I am also drawn to muted colors and natural dyes, so much of the color will be subtle.

One of the first pieces.
I will be occasionally posting progress-
Wish me luck!
