Busy Busy Busy!

Silk Painting Workshop at Allied Arts Gallery At The Park

It has been an exciting and fun year so far!!  After attending the Fiber Fusion Show opening (where I won Best Use of Mixed Media!!), I went back to Richland the next weekend and taught 2 workshops... Intro to Silk Painting and Resisting Your Dyes with an Ice Dyeing Kicker.






Resisting Dyes/Ice Dyeing Workshop at Allied Arts
Gallery At The Park - yes it was messy, but fun!!!


You can see we were making quite the mess in the Resists (Shibori) class!!

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies that took my workshops!!! You made the workshops so much fun!!!!







The next week was graduation for the Transition students at the ACT Program where I have a muggle job as a vocational specialist and was responsible for the slideshow/movie presentation.

I am SO proud of these young people!!!!








And then the next weekend I got to demo Silk Painting at the Whidbey Island Garden Tour.  I was located at the HalyRune Gardens, which were gorgeous!

Now I am settling down to do a bit more art-creation before starting my silk painting class (Class # 5660) at
the Redmond Senior Center in July.


Currently I'm working on creating a few more Serti examples for my students.






 And of course, I'm also working on my latest silk&resin creations.

This one is almost done and ready to submit to a show.

YUP, it's a busy summer - and I LOVE IT!!
