Burien Arts Gallery - Opening Reception for Fiber 19's Bountiful Textures Show

 Burien Arts Gallery - front window (my "Oh My, Camellia! is
in the front on the easel!)
Last Friday (November 6th), was the opening of the Fiber 19's Bountiful Textures Show.  

The Burien Arts Gallery is a fabulous place!  It's located in downtown Burien - and wow has Burien changed a lot since I was last there (about 30 years ago)! 

There was incredible appetizers, lots of wine, and lots of great conversation!  The show looks GREAT!  A big thank you to Louise Roby, Barbara Matthews, and TerryBerg for curating and organizing the show!!

Our show Bountiful Textures will be up from now until December 27th.  There is not only artwork available to see and purchase, but lots of wonderful smaller gifts as well!

So You Want To Make Your Own Vertical Stovepipe Steamer?

I wrote a post on my other blog several years ago, but was just asked to create a new document for the Silk Painters group on Facebook.  So I thought I'd share it here!

Making your own Stovepipe Steamer is relatively easy to do and certainly cost effective!  To buy one new (and made specifically for silk paintings) will easily cost you over $1000 bucks.... but making one yourself can cost under $100 (mine was less than $50!).

I've had several people ask: Why do you want a Stovepipe Steamer?  Can't you just use a pot and steaming basket on your stove?
Both are good questions!
Yes you can use a pot and steaming basket on your stove.  But I personally, don't care for the idea of the chemicals/dyes/etc being in my kitchen. They are NOT good eats (to borrow from Alton Brown). Plus if you use a steaming basket in a pot, you have to constantly watch the water levels.  And you don't have a lot of space, which means you're probably only steaming 1 item at a time.  And …

Derwent Academy Online Classes - a fun (and rewarding!) opportunity!

I don't know if you've had a chance to look at Derwent Academy's website - but it is chock-a-block full of information!

I recently found out that Derwent has an online academy - and that they have a rather fabulous offer
for anyone who's interested in learning more about drawing/art skills.  They currently offer a 6-lesson class to anyone who is interested.  If you complete all 6 lessons successfully, they will send you a 18-piece set of their wonderful pencils!  GOTTA LOVE THAT!!

All that is required is that you follow the general directions given (and they usually give you a choice of what or how to draw).  And that you submit a photo or scanned-image of your work to them f…
