Flowers, Fungus, and Flight - Fini








I am so pleased, but more than a little sad, that my first solo show Flowers, Fungus, and Flight has ended. 








 

Tomorrow I head to the Pacific Rim Galleria at Bellewood to take the show down.  




I had a wonderful time at the receptions and met a bunch of incredibly-lovely people!  


















Now that this show has finished, I'm off to the next group of adventures which include: 

  • packaging-up and mailing the items that sold at the show
  • Finishing the commissioned scarf I received from the show
  • Finishing the commissioned sculpture I received from the Fiber Fusion show while it was at the Schack in Everett, WA
  • Heading out to a retreat with the fabulous Schnitzel Group
  • Taking the family to the Wearable Art Show in Port Townsend (May 13th, 2017)
  • and doing a Silk Painting Demonstration at the 46th Annual Northwest Folklife Festival over Memorial Day Weekend


I haven't had time to look at June yet, but I'm guessing it will be just as busy. It's a good thing summer break is coming up so I'll have more time to work on art!





Thank you to all the delightful people I met at Bellewood!  I had so much fun and really enjoyed all of the wonderful chats I shared with the visitors to the show - I look forward to meeting you again sometime!

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 …

If You Grew Up Near Renton Washington, Maybe You'd Remember This!

I grew up in the Seattle area - moving around a bit, but staying within the general area.  One of the things my family liked to do, was visit Newberry's and Sears in Renton, WA. 




I have VERY fond memories of the candy counter at Sears - where a kid with a quarter could buy a little bag of candies...yum!






Newberrys had a soda fountain (cafe) which was my mother's favorite place to get a hot dog - because they made buns out of folded, toasted bread. 




But my very favorite thing to do - was to play
on the cement turtles outside.  There were little turtles and big turtles.  You could step from turtle to turtle and climb the big ones.  They were there for years, after newberry's left..and even after Sears left.  Then they disappeared.
BUT guess who I found on the grounds of the Renton Highland's Library??  YUP! One of the original turtles!!

Apparently someone made a bunch of these (dubbed Tommy the Turtle) and sold them to a mall developer who put them in various malls acr…
